THE ATI FOUNDATION MISSION
Providing resources and funding to children with physical impairments to enhance and sustain a better quality of life
Founded by ATI Physical Therapy, the ATI Foundation is a 501 C (3) charitable organization that gives help and hope to children with physical impairments. It was created as a way for ATI employees and patients to give back to the communities in which we live, work and serve.
Since 2003, the ATI Foundation has raised over $6,000,000 to make a day-to-day impact on the lives of thousands of children and families in our communities. Often our beneficiary families have mounting debt, and are overcome by financial and physical obstacles. Through the work of our clinical and corporate team members, we raise funds to purchase medical equipment, pay bills, and even remodel families’ homes to accommodate their child’s special needs. But more importantly, we give families hope by offering a better quality of life for their child.
RAISED SINCE 2003
