SBRN currently has two Financial Assistance Funds to help support those living in New Jersey with Spina Bifida. These Funds provide assistance for a wide variety of healthcare and day-to-day needs to help our community to optimize their wellness and live their best lives!
The SBRN Community Fund (CF)
The Community Fund (formerly the DERA Fund) provides one-time reimbursements for general health and basic necessities in response to an urgent or immediate need.
The CF helps individuals with spina bifida from New Jersey with un-reimbursed costs for medical supplies, healthcare services, adaptive equipment, home or car repairs or other basic needs (e.g., food or other supplies) in response to an urgent need. You may apply at any time but you are limited to one time per year.
Email email@example.com for an application or with questions.
The Jane Horowitz Special Medical Needs Fund (SMNF)
Our Jane Horowitz Special Medical Needs Fund has been providing relief for over 20 years to families and individuals struggling with non-reimbursed healthcare-related expenses. Due to changing needs, the SMNF has changed its focus for 2022. The fund will offer financial assistance to SBRN Members in New Jersey impacted by high costs for supplies related to spina bifida, such as bowel/bladder or wound care supplies, as well as prescription medications, which are not covered by medical insurance or other sources of funding. Applications are available in April of each year for costs expended the previous year.
