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 reassigned to an individual in need.  Depending on the item, there is a nominal process fee.

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

Assistive Technology Resources

TechOWL is a program to help people with disabilities and others find the tools and technology they need.  Please see the links below to assistive technology programs.

AIMs Leap Program is funded in part by the Reused and Exchanged Equipment Partnership (REEP), a program administered by the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University.

The Institute on Disabilities at Temple University is home to many assistive technology programs and projects including Pennsylvania’s Initiative on Assistive Technology (PIAT). PIAT is Pennsylvania’s Assistive Technology (AT) Act Program. PIAT and the other assistive technology programs and projects create TechOWL – Technology for Our Whole Lives.
