Private donations are needed to succeed with our program. We are looking for foundations or families who wish to contribute and we will add their logo or Family name to our public announcements. Customized logos are welcome. Please look at the data below. As we grow older and stay in our homes longer the risk of falling increases due to a variety of reasons. It doesn't matter what state you live in or your wealth or lack of. If your home area does not have a Fall Prevention Program I will contact your local agencies in your name and try to get similar programs started. Our goal is to reduce injuries which will in turn lower Insurance cost and government funding.
