DELTA CENTER helps LOW-INCOME, DISABLED ADULTS get FREE used DURABLE MEDICAL EQUIPMENT
Delta Center for Independent Living strives to meet the needs of low income disabled adults, helping them remain independent and living in their own homes.
One way we do this is by recycling used Durable Medical Equipment (DME). Individuals donate equipment they no longer need, and we give it to income
eligible adults who need it but can’t afford it.
“I was able to go out and enjoy outside. The scooter allows me to go out and have fun.”
Despite the name of the program, you are not required to give in order to receive durable medical equipment.
If we don’t have the medical equipment you need, we will put your name on our “needs list” and call you when the desired equipment becomes available. Our needs list is on a first come first serve basis.
Do you qualify to receive free Durable Medical Equipment (DME)?
If you reside in St. Charles, Lincoln, Warren, and St. Louis Counties, or St. Louis City, and have a house income below the amounts listed in the chart below, you qualify to receive free Durable Medical Equipment.
For assistive devices which promote independent living and which are not covered by insurance, Delta Center may be able to assist you in accessing devices such as:
- Tub Transfer Benches
- Raised Toilet Seats
- Grab Bars
- Equipment Repairs
- Cushions for Wheelchairs
- Walkers and canes
- Toilet risers and safety rails
- Bedside commodes
- Wheelchairs and transport chairs
- Wheelchair cushions-ROHO cushions

What do we expect from those that receive equipment?
The expectation of our program is that once an item is no longer needed, the individual who received the item will return the item to Delta Center so it can be shared with other individuals in need.
Do you want to donate used durable medical equipment? Delta Center accepts medical equipment donations.
We accept both financial and equipment donations to enhance our programming and provide continued assistance to disabled adults. All donations are greatly appreciated. Arrangements can be made for pick up or drop off of donations by calling 636-926-8761 and asking for Shana at extension 243.
Durable Medical Equipment (DME), is equipment that helps you with daily life. Wheelchairs, walkers and canes, bed safety rails, and toilet risers are all examples of Durable Medical Equipment.

Absolutely. We are currently accepting donations of most types of durable medical equipment. We are not accepting standard walkers, electric wheelchairs or hearing aids at this time. We also take cash donations to help support the program.
You keep it as long as you need it. If you become eligible for a new piece of equipment through another source we ask that you return it so we can loan it out again.
We have everything from incontinence supplies to stair lifts. Common requested items are walkers, wheelchairs, and shower chairs. Our inventory is always changing.

Delta Center partners with people with disabilities and their communities to remove barriers and promote positive changes leading to greater independence.
We envision a world of acceptance, access, independence, and self-determination for all.
