Welcome to the TPTA Cares page! Below you will find information about future TPTA Cares projects hosted by the TPTA Public Relations Committee.

Upcoming Events:

TPTA Cares Annual Conference Service Project (and Global PT Day of Service event) will be collecting supplies/equipment and financial donations for Rehabilitation Services Volunteer Project (RSVP)  www.RSVPTexas.org

RSVP is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that provides physical rehabilitation services and equipment to uninsured individuals with disabilities.

The RSVP-Clinic provides outpatient services to individuals with brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and amputations. These services include medical care, nursing care, pharmacist management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, neuropsychological evaluation, social work and spiritual care.

The medical equipment division (RSVP-MED) provides durable medical equipment (such as wheelchairs, bathroom equipment, and walkers) to individuals in our community with disabilities (regardless of diagnosis) who lack access to this equipment.
