How to use our services:
The person needing the equipment, or a representative of that person, may borrow any item(s) for 90 days at no charge. The person that is actually checking out the equipment and completing the form will be the person liable for the return of the equipment, not necessarily the user.  The client must have a valid stateside driver’s license or a state ID to borrow the equipment.  If they do not have either, they will have to bring someone with them that does possess this documentation and that person will be responsible for the return of the equipment.  The borrower must provide two valid phone numbers, at least one must be local. We do not pick up or deliver, nor do we reserve items. Click here to see what we lend.


We have set ANOTHER new  record! 
We loaned out more than 6,000 pieces of equipment in 2015, exceeding the previous year's record by 1,000 pieces! We served more than 7,500 clients from almost 70 Arizona communities.


Our Mission ...to lend home health equipment to all in need.


Our Vision ...To foster and sustain a community based organization that provides, on loan, home health equipment at no charge in a seamless and pleasant manner and ensures access to all by creating awareness of the service.
