Loan Exchange Assistance Program (LEAP)

Abilities in Motion's Loan Exchange Assistance Program (LEAP) is an initiative that receives and loans out assistive technology equipment and other durable medical equipment to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities and to maintain their independence and accessibility to home and community.

Donations may be written off as a tax donation and need to be dropped off at the main AIM office during regular business hours.  All items are inspected, cleaned, and processed before being leaned out.  The loans of equipment are open-ended.  We ask that the item/s are returned when no longer needed so that AIM can provide them to other individuals in need.

The LEAP program is funded through a grant from the PA Initiative for Assistive Technology and the Stabler Foundation.
