Help make a positive difference to someone who needs mobility equipment to regain independence.

The fight to regain physical mobility and independence after a serious illness or injury can be the most challenging experience of a lifetime. For many, partial recovery means reliance on special equipment to help them achieve their fullest potential.


It is our mission to acquire and provide mobility related rehabilitation equipment to maximize functional independence and improve quality of life. This equipment can make the difference between living independently and productively or living a life of dependence and immobility. Imagine the frustration of knowing equipment is available that would give freedom and independence, but not having access to it because of inadequate insurance or the inability to pay. For many citizens throughout Virginia this is a harsh reality. Our services help adults regain their mobility and independence and saves Virginians millions of dollars annually.


We depend on the support of the communities we serve. Donate your money, equipment, or time today and help your neighbors in need!
