$1 Million of durable medical equipment provided to these special children is an exciting milestone. We're very pleased to have helped so many children. It's just the tip of the iceberg for Kids Mobility Network as we continue to grow.
Littleton, Colorado (PRWEB) February 18, 2010
Kids Mobility Network, Inc. today announced that the Organization has provided over $1 million of community benefit to children with disabilities and their families. The Denver-based non-profit organization has been providing durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers and other medical equipment to children with disabilities since 2006.
“Kids Mobility Network has been providing durable medical equipment for children across Colorado and beyond for a few years now. I am very proud of the community benefit that our organization provides. Surpassing the $1 million mark is a big milestone and we have many, many more children to serve,” stated Christy Kopp, Executive Director of Kids Mobility Network.
Since its inception in 2006, the Organization has served hundreds of children with disabilities and their families, providing several hundred pieces of durable medical equipment. This equipment includes manual and power wheelchairs, walkers, gait trainers, standers and a host of other pieces of equipment that help children to better access their communities and better interact with their peers. “The purpose of durable medical equipment is so far beyond mobility. It’s about allowing kids to be doers, not observers. This peer interaction provides enhanced development of interpersonal skills and self confidence – something that is critical to every child’s development,” added Kopp.
Kids Mobility Network is rapidly expanding due to increasing needs for the services provided by the Organization. Changes in medical coverage amongst many families over the past several years have increased the need for alternatives to traditional medical insurance coverage for durable medical equipment. “Our greatest challenge to date has been attaining adequate financial resources to hire the necessary staff to meet the growing demand for our services,” stated Kopp. “We’re actively seeking corporate sponsors and donors to help us build up Kids Mobility Network to serve the many children that require our services.”
