The JT Townsend Foundation provides more than just a piece of adaptive equipment or a check- it gives so many people hope that they can overcome whatever their obstacle is and that they can still make a difference no matter what their disability is. In the end, I hope everyone is touched by JT Townsend's story and decide to live their life like JT did.
Great cause - helping those less fortunate with adaptive equipment and financial support. Carrying on the legacy of the named founder JT Townsend -- always be positive and pay it forward.
The JT Townsend Foundation provides support for individuals and families who have significant needs for adaptive equipment and services to help them achieve greater functional independence, but have not been able to acquire these things due to insurance denials or financial hardships. Patients are often left with their needs unmet and few options for assistance. Without the JTTF, many patients would be left having to settle for less independence and functional mobility. The foundation executes its mission in a loving, caring, and compassionate way that has touched over 170 families in NE Florida.
The JTTF has made an unbelievable difference in our community by making resources and equipment available to those with spinal cord injuries who might not otherwise be able to obtain these items. Because of increasing denials, co-payments, and co-insurance amounts being imposed on patients by insurance companies, it is often impossible for them to get needed equipment. The JTTF has stepped up to help patients in need receive adaptive equipment and assistive devices that increase their independence and quality of life. As a physical therapist working with these types of patients, I have first hand experience in how a wheelchair, standing frame, transfer aid, FES bike, and other items can change the lives of a patient and their caregivers. The JTTF is most definitely a "Great Non-Profit"!
Thank you for the kind words and for all you do for so many every day as well. Judi Zitiello, Board Chair JTTF
JTTF has helped over 170 families on the First Coast by providing adaptive equipment that insurance will not cover.
It has been a privilege to serve on the JT Townsend Board of Directors since its inception two years ago. We are a small group of hard working, caring individuals who truly believe in JT's desire to give back and make a difference to those needy, yet most deserving families.
Look out! There are great things ahead for this Foundation. Many thanks to our fellow board members, volunteers and donors who inspire us and help keep JT Townsend's legacy alive.
