The ReMEDy Center is a non-profit ministry of the Birmingham Baptist Association in cooperation with the Alabama Department of Rehabilition Services' STAR program. The Center opened its doors in Birmingham in 2009 at the former site of Central Park Baptist Church in Ensley, but now resides in downtown Birmingham near the major hospitals.
The ReMEDy Center seeks to involve churches, civic groups and individuals in an ongoing effort by the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (ADRS) to provide pre-owned medical equipment to people in need. ADRS's STAR (Statewide Technology Access and Response) program accepts donations of medical equipment and places the items on a monthly inventory list available online. The equipment is then loaned to family members, caseworkers, school employees and others around the state who work with individuals with either chronic or short-term disabilities or illnesses.
You can help the ReMEDy Center by (1) donating equipment, (2) finding people with equipment to donate, (3) finding people who need to be loaned this equipment and and (4) by picking up or delivering within your communy.
