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 Pediatric Care Navigation Program is a short term program that involves full case management for 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 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.

Your donations will help us set up a location and help locate potential medical staff for training.
