Getting a prosthetic through us comes with a lot of baggage. Like support, community, understanding, caring...

JTF provides children affected by limb loss with the prostheses they need throughout their growing years while serving as a caring resource, advocate and support system for these children and their parents.

From providing specialized prosthetics that allow our recipients to participate in activities they are passionate about to paying for the activities themselves, we go beyond just simply supplying basic prosthetics because we believe in creating a better quality of life for those affected.

We provide opportunities for kids to thrive.

We understand that having limb differences can be challenging for families. The initial costs… the replacement costs… the extra activity costs… all of these can become barriers. That is why we are committed to assuring that every child has access to the prostheses they need to do whatever they want to do in life! Limbs are not a luxury!

We create a caring community of support.

In addition to helping with the financial burden prosthetics pose, we connect families with each other, helping them build connections with others living with limb loss. Whether through our Parent Advisory Board or our private Facebook groups – we create a caring community of support for our JTF Kids and their families.

We advocate for prosthetic parity.

Providing prosthetics directly to kids is the most immediate way we can help them thrive. But in order to affect long term change, we are fighting for prosthetic parity and holding insurance companies accountable. Insurance that deems activity limbs ‘not medically necessary” and limits prostheses replacement to arbitrary timelines does not have the best interest of the growing child in mind.
