The Altus Foundation, founded in 2011 by Taseer Badar, has helped hundreds of individuals get the treatment and health care they need. Most recently, the Foundation is pleased to share its support for Stay in Step, a nonprofit recovery center that provides state-of-the-art recovery to spinal cord injury patients, both military and civilian. The Foundation provided a new wheel chair to Armando, which will help with his mobility and rehabilitation process.
For Armando, the donation from the Altus Foundation was a blessing for other reasons. His family knew that a specially customized wheelchair was essential for Armando to have solid quality of living but the cost of the wheelchair was going to put the family in a catastrophic financial situation. With only one source of revenue coming into the household, the family was left in a precarious financial situation. The support of the Altus Foundation provided Armando with ability to move comfortably without pain and helped the family avoid a financial crisis.
"Our goal at the Altus Foundation is to provide resources that make a difference in the lives of others," said Taseer Badar, CEO of ZT Wealth and Altus Foundation board member. "We couldn't be happier to support a wonderful organization like Stay in Step and empower people like Armando on the road to recovery."
