Changing Hands: Equipment Reuse Program for Individuals with Disabilities

The Changing Hands equipment reuse program provides AT equipment and devices to PA residents of all ages who are not able to obtain the necessary equipment through any other means.


About Changing Hands

If you have a need for equipment, but do not have the financial means to obtain it, we encourage you to check out Changing Hands. If your insurance does not cover certain equipment… or if you have an immediate need but must wait out a grace period before coverage commences… Changing Hands can help.

Our goal is to provide you with the equipment or device(s) you need to become as independent as possible at home, at work, at school, or at play. All our equipment is provided to you on a first come, first served basis, FREE OF CHARGE.
