Additional Info & Comments:

Designed to Live is a mercy ministry of Bridge Builders International. O&P services are provided to those that would benefit but are unable to get them, due to transportation issues or qualification criteria. Designed to Live works from a mobile care unit to provide O&P services when transportation is a factor. Designed to Live collaborates with local O&P providers to enhance care and education and to avoid encroachment on private and governmental practices.Beyond O&P services, Designed to Live seeks to empower those affected by physical disability through social, emotional, physical, and spiritual involvement. We hope to empower those with disability to live a life of meaning and significance.
