About the Loan Closet

The only community resource to borrow basic medical equipment.

The concept of helping patients get the services, assistance, and equipment they need during an illness or injury is so simple. But as anyone who's ever navigated our healthcare system can tell you, the reality can be incredibly complex, frustrating and expensive.

The Loan Closet, owned and operated by VNA Health, has served Santa Barbara County since 1908 and is the exact opposite of most healthcare hassles. The warm and welcoming staff help residents with free short-term loans of basic medical equipment such as wheelchairs, crutches, knee scooters, walkers, shower seats, and more. As a free community service, the Loan closet is open for anyone residing in Santa Barbara County.

The Loan closet is the only community resource in Santa Barbara County offering free short-term loans of basic medical equipment. Owned and operated by VNA Health, the Loan Closet has been in serving the County since the founding of VNA health in 1908. Today the Loan closet serves more than 4,000 residents each year, and is completely supported through private donations and contributions, often from people who have benefited from the Loan Closet.
