The Foundation organization established in 1993 to assist amputees with prosthetic rehabilitation.
We provide assistance to amputees domestically and internationally who would otherwise have no other financial resources. The Foundation evolved from another non-profit, the Institute for the Advancement of Prosthetics in Lansing, Michigan.
Our mission is to advance education and improve community support for amputees of the world. The Barr Foundation strives to improve the amputee’s quality of life through access to proper prosthetic care and by encouraging improvements in the care system.
The Foundation carries out this mission through its efforts to help amputees of the world live healthy and productive lives with dignity.
