Many know of our prosthetic limb recycling program through Standing With Hope.  We partner with Core Civic as one of their faith-based programs for inmates.  They help us disassemble donated used prosthetic limbs ...and we purchase additional materials, pack it all up, and send it all to Ghana.

Here's something both humorous and alarming that happened to me this week when assembling supplies. 


The prosthetic limb program of Standing With Hope draws from the journey of founder, Gracie Rosenberger, who lost both of her own legs.  Gracie experienced a horrific car accident 35 years ago as a freshman at Nashville’s Belmont University.  Eighty operations later (including the amputation of both legs), Gracie’s passion to help her fellow amputees through ministry and mobility—continues to be the driving cause behind our work.

Recruiting prosthetists from around the country, Standing With Hope teaches and equips local workers within Ghana’s Ministry of Health to build and maintain prosthetic limbs for their own people (as well as from neighboring countries).  For roughly the price of television, lives are changed—one leg at a time.  If the patient cannot afford the co-pay for the limb charged by the clinic, then Standing With Hope will sponsor that limb.   In a unique partnership with Tennessee-based Core Civic, inmates at a Nashville prison volunteer to disassemble used prosthetic limbs we collect from around the country to reuse the feet, pylons, knees, connectors, and adapters.

Today is a great day to help someone walk!  Sponsor a limb, sponsor supplies …there are so many ways that YOU can give the gift that keeps on walking!

A woman struggling with her needy husband while she cared for her mother ...posted her frustration online in a Facebook group. The "advice" she got from members ...appalled me, so I weighed in to the discussion.
Nancy from Jacksonville called in response to what I told this woman ...and we had a lovely spirited discussion about it!

Seven years ago, Standing With Hope launched a program - the only one of it's kind in the world - where inmates helped disassemble donated used prosthetic limbs in order to recycle the parts. Standing With Hope is the presenting sponsor of HOPE FOR THE CAREGIVER.  Founded by Gracie and Peter Rosenberger, Standing With Hope has two program areas:

  1. A prosthetic limb outreach to amputees in Ghana, West Africa
  2. An outreach (HOPE FOR THE CAREGIVER) to family caregivers ( world-wide)

CoreCivic manages and owns private prisons and detention centers around the country, and hosts many faith-based programs within those facilities.   Standing With Hope is one of those programs located at the Metro Davidson County Detention Centers ( Nashville)

Gracie_Clayton_Davidson.jpgChaplain Henry Davidson (Pictured with Gracie and shop manager Ms Clayton) called the show and shared the value of this and other programs in helping inmates turn their lives around.  The success rate is astonishing, and the program has a far reaching impact. 

Chaplain Davidson is one of my favorite people in the whole world. His passion for wounded and broken lives is evident in the first moments of meeting him. He and his wife also serve as chaplains for the Metro Nashville Police Department.  

If your company is interested in working with CoreCivic to hire inmates who want to prove they can return to society, rebuild their lives, and make a positive contribution ...please click here to learn more and contact CoreCivic.
