Together we can change lives
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 wheelchair to Armando, which will help with his mobility and rehabilitation process.
For Armando, the donation from the Altus Foundation was a blessing for many reasons. His family knew that a specially-customized wheelchair was essential for Armando to have a 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 the 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. We couldn't be happier to support a wonderful organization like Stay in Step and empower people like Armando on the road to recovery."

The Altus Foundation delivered care coordination that not only provided Ms. Fernandez with a physician, but also enabled her to visit the facility in which the surgical removal of a malignant tumor was performed. Wendy is now free of the cost and pain that she was burdened with prior to connecting to the Altus Foundation and considers the Altus Foundation a blessing to her and her family.
Carmen Klein was diagnosed with a bi-malleolar ankle fracture and required surgery. She reached out to the Altus Foundation and she was assisted care coordination that connected her with a physician that facilitated the surgery. Carmen recently got her cast removed and is currently engaged in successful therapy that is enabling her to walk pain free.
Theresa Amadi-Obi, a mother of three, returned to the Altus Foundation as she started complaining about sharp pains in her back. The Foundation helped facilitate a CT scan, which showed lytic lesions and her need for palliative radiation therapy. Theresa is currently receiving the radiation therapy treatment thanks to the assistance of the Altus Foundation. The intervention was considered "a life-saving move" by Obi's physician.
Wren Carter had been going through consistent back pain and had limited resources to get an MRI. She was directed to the Altus Foundation for assistance and got an MRI for her cervical, thoracic and lumbosacral spine to assess her low back pain. With the MRI scan reports, she is now moving towards getting her treatment.
Prince Williams, a blind man dealing with medical issues, was made homeless when his home was damaged in a fire. Prince had little resources to handle the catastrophe. The Altus Foundation paid for his lodging until he could be relocated to a safe place.
