“MERP was a HUGE help! Because of the tub transfer bench, I can now safely get into the bathtub to have a proper shower and the wheelchair gave me my life back!”

“MERP is one of the best organizations! I am incredibly grateful for MERP because, without this program, I could not have afforded this equipment, and having this equipment was the only way possible I could recover at home because I live alone”

“I was unstable going grocery shopping with just my cane and my walker didn’t have a bag to carry my items. The MERP staff listened to me and loaned me a Tripod walker. I feel much safer now and I can carry my groceries!”
