The Equipment Loan Program is a program that matches children with needed medical equipment that is not covered by insurance (or is covered by insurance but receipt is delayed) and loans it to them for the duration of need. The program also provides a way for families to “give back” by donating medical equipment to other children that their child has outgrown or no longer needs.
The Spiritual Support Groups are an ongoing program that support families both spiritually and emotionally. The Spiritual Support Groups are for families that have children with disabilities or chronic health problems. A trained leader/facilitator will guide the families in discussion and prayer, using biblically based literature as a springboard for discussion.
The Social Media Outreach Program is a long term program that uses various forms of social media to reach out to families that have children with disabilities and chronic health problems as well as the general public. The Social Media Outreach makes use of the most popular forms of social media to encourage families both spiritually and emotionally, connect them to resources, educate them on the latest information regarding both specific disabilities and general health care, and promote disability awareness to the general public through emailing newsletters, and posting blog entries, photos, links, and articles.
The Refugee/Immigrant Resources Program is a short term program that involves full case management for refugee or immigrant families that have children with disabilities or chronic health problems, with a strategic plan to gradually release all health care management back to the family as they become increasingly equipped by being connected to, and educated about, the resources in their community.

The International Community Coordinator Program is a long term program that serves a specific disabled community outside of the United States. The Community Coordinator evaluates family’s needs and connects them with existing resources such as clinics, schools, therapists, etc. If there is no existing resource to meet the needs within the community, the Community Coordinator (Rebecca) works in collaboration with local resources and Signposts Ministries to bring in people to meet those needs.
In Africa many children are shunned because of their disability. Dr. Bransford does operations in Africa for various disabilities for children. He is also training medical staff in Africa to do disability operations. This program will set up a new training facility in an unreached part of Africa. This program is in progress. Your donations will help us set up a location and help locate potential medical staff for training.
Rebecca has had some good moments and some very bad moments this month. Dr. Bransford is in Africa working as well, so they have been able to collaborate during this difficult time.read more
