ImageEquipment Loan Program

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 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.

What Makes Signposts Ministries Different?


Signposts Ministries is a non-profit that works like a community.  Most non-profit businesses have a clear line between the people they serve and their donors and volunteers.  Here, we are not a top-down operation, we are a circle of giving.


We serve families that have children with disabilities and chronic health problems.  Do you know someone that falls into that category?


The child that struggles with learning disabilities at school.  The baby with food allergies.  The neighbor that uses a wheelchair, or was just diagnosed with cancer.  The teenager that is going through depression.  I could be describing a friend, relative, or maybe even you.
