Examples of various devices that can be donated

If you are a Virginian with a disability, please use the below Virginia Reuse Network (VRN) partner contact information to apply for or donate gently used assistive technology (AT). AT includes medical mobility equipment and bathroom safety equipment such as scooters, wheelchairs, walkers, tub benches, shower chairs, canes, grab bars, and bariatric equipment. In general, the VRN serves persons who are uninsured, underinsured, or lack resources to purchase appropriate rehab equipment on their own. Each program has financial and medical eligibility requirements and inventory is limited to donations made by the community.

Virginia Reuse Network (VRN) partners include: the Foundation for Rehabilitation Equipment and Endowment (F.R.E.E.) http://www.free-foundation.org/; the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) http://www.vadars.org/; Virginia Assistive Technology System (VATS) and Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Center (WWRC) http://wwrc.virginia.gov/; and a “Virtual Network” comprised of various human services agencies, healthcare organizations, healthcare professionals, faith-based organizations and others dedicated to helping persons have access to appropriate and quality rehab equipment. Virtual Network members are not funded by the VRN, but are valuable partners in helping to serve Virginians with disabilities statewide.
