Disability Achievement Center (DAC) partners with the Florida Alliance for Assistive Services and Technology (FAAST), serving as one of five Regional Reuse Centers across Florida. FAAST provide funding to DAC for the purpose of Repairing, recycling, refurbishing, & Reassigning assistive technology (AT) to Floridians. This means that these devices can be used by people in need, rather than be sent to a landfill where their usefulness is wasted and perfectly aligns with DAC’s Medical Equipment Recycling Program (MERP). DAC lists available assistive technology (AT) on the FAAST Assistive Technology Exchange (http://faast.org/listings/) which is an online classifieds system. This exchange is available to all individuals who are looking for some form of AT. The AT Exchange includes items from categories such as:
Aids of Daily Living Computers & Peripherals
Personal Care Ambulation & Positioning
Home Adaptations Scooters
Wheelchairs Any tool to help!
FAAST also offers Information and Assistance on AT, funding, and available services, a “Try Before You Buy” AT loan program, device demonstrations, and training. You can find FAAST at https://faast.org/ and reach them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-844-FL-FAAST (1-844-353-2278). As always, you can reach out to us here at Disability Achievement Centers with your questions at email@example.com or call 727-539-7550.
We look forward to helping you overcome barriers you face!
