Mission Steps Of Faith is a nonprofit foundation dedicated to providing prosthetic care, hope, and comfort to amputees needing financial support.
Background Our founder, Rob Pittman had been helping amputees in need for many years when they would come to his prosthetic shop and had no insurance or way to pay for the devices they needed. This led to him working to start a nonprofit, so that he could successfully help many more patients, and our organization originally was granted it’s 501c3 status in 2009, under a different name. Mr. Pittman worked to get someone in place to actually run and build the org, but ultimately that didn’t really fall into place until early 2013 when he met Billy Brimblecom, Jr., who was at the time, a patient at his prosthetic clinic. Rob and Billy quickly realize they both shared a passion to help amputees with prosthetic needs, and Steps Of Faith, as it’s now known, officially began on April 1st, 2013 with Billy Brimblecom, Jr. as Executive Director. Billy and Rob slowly began to build a great board, raise money, and help amputees in the Nashville area, then all over the south, and now all over the country.
Impact We are thankful to have been able to help over 50 amputees receive much needed prosthetic limbs last year! We brought on a full time staff member that has helped our organization greatly. We also added 4 new board members and were able to better diversify our funding sources. Our goals for 2018 are to help at least 70 amputees, which will restore mobility to more than person a week. We hope to further diversify our funding sources, and further the awareness of our charity's existence, so more amputees know we are here for them.
Needs One of the main things we need is simply more money coming in consistently. We really are trying to get more recurring monthly donors. This will help us to hire a new part time employee which is needed, because the workload seems to grow by the week as we build the organization. We also want our name recognition to grow as the more people to know who we are and what we do, the more patients we can help. While we are helping as many amputees as possible, we currently do not have a waiting list, but would love to, so that we can create a sense of urgency, which will help bring in more donations. This would include larger, and again, consistent donors, who can help us grow.

Other ways to donate, support, or volunteer Mailing a check, donating online, credit card via phone, hosting events, hosting peer to peer events online, providing in-kind donations of goods, services, or silent auction items. Volunteers can donate time to help with events, marketing, and fundraising.

Public Health

The dramatic achievements of public health in the 20th century have improved our quality of life in a myriad of ways, including an increase in life expectancy, worldwide reduction of infant and child mortality rates, and the elimination or reduction of many communicable diseases. In Middle Tennessee, improvements in preventive medicine and advanced medical technology have resulted in increased life expectancy and improved health for many residents. However, significant health disparities exist in our region, resulting in poor health status often related to economic status, race, and/or gender.
