Kid Assist marks 16 years
A program that began with just five pieces of specialty mobility equipment in 1997 will mark its 16th anniversary of serving those within Jasper County with an open house this week.
Kid Assist of Jasper County, an equipment loan program which provides mobility and leisure equipment free of charge to children and adults with disabilities in Jasper County, will host an open house on Wednesday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the program’s new offices at First United Presbyterian Church’s Friendship House, located at 213 N. Third Ave. E.
Kid Assist’s purpose is to “enhance the quality of life of children, youth, and adults with disabilities in Jasper County by loaning leisure, recreation, and other adapted equipment they might not otherwise be able to obtain, in order to learn independent skills and increase their self sufficiency,” according to a press release from the organization. This equipment includes everyday objects like wheelchairs and walkers as well as leisure equipment such as bicycles.
