We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit charitable organization that provides financial assistance for mobility-related health expenses. We are local and serve the people in the Tulsa area and surrounding communities.
Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.
– HELEN KELLER –
We strive to make lives better for people in our community. We are a diverse and inclusive charity that helps individuals of all backgrounds recovering from debilitating health conditions. Our mission is to improve quality of life by providing financial assistance for mobility-aides and other adaptive equipment for those in need. We empower people to regain their active lifestyles by getting back out in the community, being social with friends and family, and eventually returning to work. The assistance we provide is not currently available by other charities.
We envision a community were our neighbors are able to achieve their mobility goals, regardless of financial status. We aim to be a dependable community resource for people in financial need who are experiencing a health crisis that affects their mobility and independence. Many health conditions negatively impact a person’s overall functional status, causing significant debility or various functional impairments. While health insurance may cover a portion of medical costs, it is often insufficient at covering mobility-related expenses. We recognize that activity and movement are vitally important in improving physical and mental health and in restoring independence. When individuals with functional impairments are provided with the appropriate assistive device(s) recommended by health professionals, overall functional capabilities and quality of life improves.
Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.
