OUR MISSION

Mobility Aids Lending Library (MALL) provides free medical and mobility devices, including canes, walkers, scooters, and wheelchairs, to people who need them in Monroe County, Indiana.

As experienced mobility aid users who live with disabilities ourselves, we provide compassionate peer support to match equipment with people who might otherwise be unable to obtain it due to time or financial constraints, insurance limitations, or other factors. 

MALL’s mission of repurposing donated mobility aids offers an environmentally friendly alternative to discarding functional medical equipment.

We are an inclusive organization that welcomes and serves everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, ancestry, gender, national origin, disability, race, size, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, or citizenship.
