Meeting the Needs of our Community

In the last year, Chosen distributed over 3,000 home health care items to members of our local community. That is over nine items given out each day our doors were open! It is people like you who allow us to continue to serve the community. You can help by donating gently used home health care items when you are finished with them and by letting others know about this need. Please note, we are unable to take medications, food, or liquids of any kind, or anything expired. You may drop items off at our office at 3638 West 26th Street, Erie, PA - Monday - Thursday: 9:00AM - 3:00PM and Friday: 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM.

For those facing mobility challenges, Chosen works along side our partners, Ramps of Hope, to build and install temporary ramps. Thanks to a dedicated volunteer group, the ramp modules are custom designed for each person's residence at no cost to them. When they are no longer needed, we will reclaim the ramp for future use. For many, these ramps are life changing for their lifestyle and independence.

If you would like to make a financial donation to help us support these ministries, that would be appreciated as well! Thank you!

Durable Home Healthcare

Chosen serves as a distribution center for home health care items in the Erie, PA region. We receive gently used equipment and new supply items such as wheelchairs, walkers, transfer benches, shower chairs, bed canes, and unexpired diabetic supplies. These items are available to our neighbors at no cost. (Donations to the ministry are accepted.) On average, over 195 items are distributed each month. However, due to lack of supplies, 30-35 requests go unfilled per month. If you are in need of durable medical equipment or supplies, call us to check on availability. And, if you know of anyone or any organization that might be able to donate some durable home health care items, direct them to Chosen. This will help us better serve our community!

Pick – Ups/Deliveries

Chosen offers a limited pick-up/delivery service within a 10 – mile radius of the facility. A minimum, non-refundable contribution of $15.00 is required, along with photos of the items being donated. If you would like to schedule this service, complete the below form and we will reach out with further instructions. If you have any questions, please contact Amber at equipment@chosen210.com.
