WHAT WE DO
Project MEND is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) agency dedicated to helping people struggling with illness and disability obtain medical equipment and financial assistance to help with the purchase of assistive technologies medically necessary for rehabilitation and recovery.
Medical Equipment Reuse
Donated medical equipment (electric hospital beds; wheelchairs; power chairs; bedside commodes; walkers; etc.) is cleaned, fixed, and repaired. This equipment is then provided to those that need it and can’t afford it.
Assistive Technology (AT)
This service helps individuals with disabilities pay for specialized medical equipment like, diabetic shoes; gait trainers; cranial helmets; adaptive switches; communication equipment; seating aids; and others. These devices must be medically necessary. Project MEND offers financial assistance for a maximum of $500 per adult client and $1,000 per child. The number of clients Project MEND is able to assist changes each year due to funding.
