For over 29 years, Project MEND has provided professionally refurbished and sanitized medical equipment and other assistive technology items to individuals of all ages who are living with a disability and/or illness in South Texas. We complete our impactful mission through three service provisions: Medical Equipment Reuse, Assistive Technology Financial Aid and Medical Equipment Repairs.

Medical Equipment Reuse Program
Through Medical Equipment Reuse, Project MEND collects donations of previously used medical equipment from nursing homes, medical equipment companies, partner agencies and individuals. After being evaluated for its safe use, the equipment is professionally refurbished, sanitized to the State standard, repaired and logged into available inventory. Once available, Project MEND distributes the equipment to individuals in need.
Project MEND’s Veteran Program had significant funding reduced for Fiscal Year July 1, 2022- June 30, 2023.
As a result, Project MEND will not be able to waive any fees or the cost of parts for our Veteran Program. Assistive Technology is also impacted and will be on hold.
We are working to find other funding resources and strategic partners to fill this gap. We will keep the public informed of any updates.
Thank you for understanding.
Assistive Technology Financial Aid
Assistive Technology Financial Aid allows Project MEND to assist in the purchase of items not available for immediate distribution from our inventory and often more specialized/unique to the individual in nature. Through established partnerships with various medical equipment and assistive technology companies, prosthetic and orthotic agencies and labs, we provide a maximum of $1000 per person (when funding is available), paid directly to our vendors, for the purchase of these items.
