The Quality of Life program awards grants to fellow nonprofits that mirror the Reeve Foundation’s mission and commitment to foster community engagement, enhance independence and promote healthy self-esteem.
Broward Health North’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Spinal Cord Injury Program will use the grant to purchase current technology and equipment to be used to educate and train patients’ families and caregivers in the safe and proper usage of the equipment once the patient moves from the hospital to home, improving the patient’s quality of life.
