  • Accessibility: Ramps, grab bars or other equipment or remodeling to make your home more accessible and help you become more independent.
  • Medical Travel Assistance: Gas and/or lodging expenses for out-of-town medical travel when you’re referred by a local physician.

Community Fundraisers 
  • Community Fundraisers help to provide financial assistance using funds that are not generated by our organization but raised by community members on behalf of a person with a disability or health challenge. NDAD provides this service for no charge.
