Regional Rehab


Because of your support, the Regional Rehabilitation Center in Tupelo was able to cover the $1500 cost of providing 3 therapists with continued Kinesiotherapy Tape Training.   

What is Kinesiotherpay taping? According to, the definition is as follows: a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting

This is a necessary and beneficial therapy for many individuals coming to them for assistance in living a better life.




S.A.F.E. reached out to us as a new organization requesting funding this year. As the number of those in need increase, so does their need for space. After expanding services into a building on their property, it couldn't be used as a necessary daycare facility without a privacy fence surrounding it. Now they have a safe, secure location for the children of women receiving their services!
