Loan Closets

The listed nonprofits loan home medical equipment to those unable to buy or rent; availability is limited. Some churches and other nonprofit agencies give or loan medical equipment on a limited basis to people who cannot afford it. Some organizations listed in Medical Information & Health Education also have very limited loan closets. See also Medical Equipment & Supplies.
