Project CARAT (Coordinating & Assisting the Reuse of Assistive Technology) supports the reuse of assistive technology that is no longer needed or used by its original owner and is acquired by a new owner at no cost.
Our inventory of equipment changes daily. If we do not have items you are needing, please check back often. Items we are always in need of include shower benches, bedside commodes, manual wheelchairs, etc. If you have any of these items to donate contact us today! To search for items we currently have available, visit the KY AT Locator website or contact the CARAT site nearest you.
If you have an item you are in need of or have an item you would like to donate, please complete one of the forms below. Someone from our core team will be in touch with you within two business days to complete your request.
The goal of Project CARAT is to make Assistive Technology and Durable Medical Equipment more accessible to those who need it in underserved areas of Kentucky. In order to make this happen, Project CARAT is partnering with agencies across the state. We take donated equipment, clean it, make repairs if we need to, and then redistribute it to people who need it. If you live in Kentucky and have a need for equipment, or have equipment you’d like to donate, please let us know.
To date, project CARAT has provided 12,349 assistive technology/durable medical equipment items valued at over $3,063,955 (estimated MRSP) to 3,276 individuals with disabilities
