The article notes that the equipment was funded by Friends of Man.Assistive Technology for Kansans (ATK) is pleased to note that the work of AT Specialists at the Southeast AT Access Site, Parsons, KS was recently recognized by Friends of Man, a private non-profit foundation. ATK customer Nancy V. received AT services to help her decide what assistive technology would work best for her. Staff provided device demonstrations, she was able to try out devices, and a short-term loan of equipment was available. The ATK philosophy “Try before you buy” helped her make the right decision. ATK staff worked with Nancy to review public and private funding resources, identified the ones most likely to fit her situation and assisted her in completing the application and submitting required funding documentation. For more than 36 years, Friends of Man has helped people with critical needs return to or more towards a more independent life. Thanks to Friends of Man!
