Funding for Assistive Technology and Therapy Available!

The Robbie Foundation was founded on behalf of a boy living with cerebral palsy, a condition that leaves him dependent on others for all his daily needs. The goal of the foundation is to see the world brought to children who are unable to explore it on their own. To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for its ATT Program, which is open to children with special needs who would benefit from adaptive equipment, assistive technology, therapy treatment, and/or any other essential item not covered by insurance or any additional funding resource.
