M4A’s Assisting with Independence and Mobility (AIM) program is a community service project initiative providing safe and healthy independence and mobility solutions for elderly and disabled individuals living within Blount, Chilton, Shelby, St. Clair, and Walker Counties.
Community Service Project Examples:
- Grab Bars
- Wheelchair Ramps
- Porch or Step Repair
- Yard Cleanup or Maintenance
- Other Low-Cost Home Modifications and Maintenance (By Approval)
Although community service projects offered have no cost to clients, the AIM program depends on the generosity of the community’s donations and volunteer efforts. Client and volunteer cost-sharing is always encouraged and appreciated.
