A collaboration between Washington County nonprofits, h.e.l.p. Corner is a short term, medical equipment lending program that brings mobility and independence to community members in need. Loans are limited to 3 months but extensions may be requested. We have two locations in Washington County and are fully staffed by volunteers.
Our h.e.l.p. Corners loan equipment out to community members for a small cash or check deposit along with a signed contract. The deposit is refunded when the item is returned to h.e.l.p. Corner on time, clean and in good condition. It is then put back into circulation to help the next person in need.
How we h.e.l.p. Washington County:
We accept donations of most durable medical equipment that we normally inventory. All equipment donations must be clean and fully functional and are subject to approval. Once approved our volunteers prep and process the items for use. Sorry, but we do not accept medications or medical supplies.
For those looking for availability of equipment or for items we accept as donations please call or email one of our locations.

United Way of Washington County
United Way of Washington County engages, convenes, and mobilizes community resources to address root causes of local health and human service needs, to create lasting positive changes to community conditions.
h.e.l.p. Corner started in 2016, as a collective effort between three Washington County organizations that saw a need for improved access to life changing medical equipment for residents.
Recycling and reuse of durable home medical equipment makes sense. When h.e.l.p. Corner loans gently used equipment, our community benefits. It ensures that necessary medical equipment is accessible to those who need it most.
Our purpose is twofold: we provide equipment that is often costly for many people, as well as promote the reuse of items that are in good working condition, bringing a higher quality of life to community members time and again.
