Advancing Rehab

The Idaho State Elks Association has a long tradition of helping Idahoans attain their highest level of physical independence. We developed one of the country’s premier physical rehabilitation networks, the Elks Rehab System, known for highly personal, expert care.

Learn More About Idaho Elks Rehab

Idaho Elks Rehab, a project of the Idaho State Elks Association, provides funding to nonprofit rehab providers, universities, and local community groups to help improve the lives of Idaho residents and families.

Who We Are?

The Idaho State Elks Association is a charitable organization that began working with rehab patients in 1947, when it established a convalescent home for children with polio. The effort grew into the Northwest’s premier rehab system, providing state-of-the art, personalized care at the main Elks Rehab Hospital, the Elks Hearing and Balance Center, and Elks Internal Medicine. The Elks also partnered with St. Luke’s Health System to deliver children’s rehab and specialized wound care.

Our Mission

In 2014, the Idaho Elks transitioned away from providing hands-on rehab services and now—through philanthropic grants—focuses on providing financial support to rehab programs and projects.

Grants may be used for equipment, staff training, research, health education programs, and local projects that enhance the lives of rehab patients in Idaho.

What If Every Idahoan Gave $1?

If everyone in Idaho gave just $1, we could invest $1.6 million for rehab in our state.

In our lifetimes, we will all know many people who need rehabilitation of some kind—let’s be sure they have the best there is!
