Elevations was established in 2012 by committed medical professionals, families of special needs children, and community members who see too many children with physical and mental challenges who could be helped by therapy but who have limited or no resources to meet the cost. In November of 2013, we filled our first funding requests.
Elevations provides two funding cycles for families per year, in the spring and fall. Qualifying children must be undergoing therapy and require a recommendation from a licensed provider.
Multiple co-pays, high deductibles, exhausted and limited insurance benefits, as well as services and equipment that are not covered by insurance are barriers to care that families face. Our organization works with therapy providers to identify and qualify children for assistance to ensure that a families’ inability to pay will not hinder access to the care they need.
Funds that are available for therapy services and equipment are paid directly to licensed providers.
Children ages 0-18 who live in the greater Spokane area can qualify for financial resources. By providing access to care, our program elevates children to reach their full potential.
