Support Ability1st

We are so grateful for your financial investment! A few examples of how it can be utilized include: the purchase of durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers and shower benches; medical equipment repairs such as the purchase of a new battery for an electric wheelchair; and disposable incontinence supplies which are medically necessary yet expensive.

Your investment may also be used to help a Big Bend neighbor who has been chronically homeless and placed in housing purchase basic necessities such as toiletries, towels, sheets, pots, pans, and dishes. Items such as tablets and computers are also prohibitively expensive for many of our Big Bend neighbors living with a disability, but necessary for those enrolled in educational classes or job training.
