Ways We Help People
The Center provides Information & Referral Services to individuals, families and professionals working with people with a wide variety of disAbility challenges. BTC operates nine Lending Library Programs to enable individuals to "try out" devices and strategies to help them live, learn, work and play. Trainings, Technical Assistance and Advocacy services are also available. We are excited to share we have expanded our ReUtilization activities beyond computer related items to include durable medical equipment items such as walkers, wheelchairs and gait trainers to support people unable to afford items. Please contact the Center for more details!
Our Challenge 2016
To help you understand how BTC impacts people’s lives every day, consider:
- $25 enables a young child with physical disAbilities to learn basic skills using specially adapted toys
- $50 enables a mom of a teen struggling with dyslexia to use a special software program to help them learn how to read and write
- $75 enables a veteran with a traumatic brain injury explore supportive tools and strategies to help him follow directions and remember daily tasks
- $100 enables a person with a disAbility, unable to afford one, to receive a gently-used computer and explore supportive devices/software
There is a tremendous need for volunteers in every non-profit organization, and BTC is no different. From simple socialization with the people on campus to actually conducting group or community activities, it takes hands-on support for our people to have maximum life experiences. As a volunteer, you will be trained, provide invaluable support, and leave every day with a feeling of overwhelming satisfaction as you see the smiles of people that truly need you.
Many volunteer opportunities are available at BTC. For information on volunteering, see our Volunteers Page and also give us a call at (859) 294-4343 or (800) 209-7767.
