Financial Assistance Program

It is important for children with physical disabilities to continuously participate in therapeutic activities to increase and maintain the function, use and range of motion about their joints and muscles.  Access to the proper adaptive equipment and additional therapy sessions can support their care, progress and confidence. These often become additional out-of-pocket expenses for families, who already face financial strain with other basic healthcare costs associated with caring for children with physical disabilities.

Kya’s Krusade provides two types of Financial Assistance Grants to help families with expenses not covered by insurance:

  1. Adaptive Equipment [Up To $1,000]
  2. Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Hippotherapy Sessions [Up To $500]
Who is eligible to receive financial assistance?
Children under the age of 18 with a confirmed diagnosis of a life-long physical disability affecting the child’s motor skills, for which physical/occupational therapy is part of the treatment regimen, are eligible to receive financial assistance.
What does the financial assistance cover?
Financial assistance awarded through Kya’s Krusade may only be used for adaptive equipment, hippotherapy, or additional physical or occupational therapy sessions not covered by insurance. Examples of eligible adaptive equipment are adaptive easels, tables, chairs and seating; mobility aids (gait trainers, walkers, tricycles); standing aids and assistive bathroom, bathing and toileting equipment. 
* Please note that we do not provide financial assistance for the purchase, repair or modification of vehicles
