Through subcontracts with community-based organizations, assistive technology reutilization programs are available statewide. There are six (6) assistive technology centers offering no-cost AT for individuals with disabilities. STAR 's reutilization programs meet the needs of Alabamians of all ages with all types of disabilities.
A full range of assistive technology is available with no disability restrictions. Only the range of devices donated/listed and the resources needed to refurbish those devices restricts these programs.
Donations are obtained through various means (family members/advocates of individuals with disabilities, individuals with disabilities, case managers for individuals with disabilities, schools, durable medical equipment vendors, etc). Inquiries/acceptance arrangements can be made by toll-free number, local numbers, email and/or in person. Donations are tax-deductible.
Acquisition of donation(s) may occur through donor drop-off, staff delivery, and/or donor-to-user. Each donation will be assessed on a case-by-case basis at the closest local level for both acceptance and delivery means. All programs will make every effort to assure donation variety as much as possible; however, some donation items will be strictly donor-to-user.
