What We Do

Durable Medical Equipment

Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Loan Program
The DME Loan Program provides free, life-enhancing medical equipment loans for all people in our community; there are no eligibility requirements. All we ask is that you return it so that others may benefit.

The equipment we collect from donors is what we loan. Your good will is what keeps this program alive, so both your equipment and financial donations are gratefully accepted.

DHHA and the multiple people who are able to re-use your equipment continually send thanks to your way.  (Maybe something positive happens to you as a result!)
