Crystal Mitchell has benefited greatly from LVCIL's Information and Referral services and Reused Equipment Program.
In late spring of 2022, she was seeking a rollator walker to replace one that had broken. Without a rollator walker, she was unable to go out into the community. She received the equipment she needed a day after she was referred by her social worker to make the call to LVCIL. More recently, Crystal finally got approved for housing and was in the process of moving out of a second-floor boarding house. She desperately needed furniture, including a hospital bed with a delivery option.
With the support of her social worker and staff at LVCIL, a new, free hospital bed was delivered and setup by the Junkluggers of Lehigh Valley
Crystal is ever grateful for the efforts of this team of people.
LVCIL partners with service providers, agencies, county and state offices to provide you with the best, most up-to-date information and resources. In addition, our Reused Equipment Program is made possible through our partnership with Tech OWL - Technology for Our Whole Lives.
TechOWL is a statewide assistive technology program and is the Commonwealth’s Assistive Technology Act Program at the
Institute on Disabilities at Temple University, College of Education, funded through a grant from the Administration on Community Living, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. TechOWL is LVCIL’s partner in offering assistive technology (AT) services and LVCIL is representing TechOWL in our region. With our referral service, we can help people consider funding sources or other donation programs for larger items like hospital beds or stair lifts that are not kept in our inventory.
