Dorothy is on dialysis and has had a stroke, has arthritis, and uses a power scooter to get around.  She spends time alone in the home that fire safety is a concern. Her great-nephew Eric helped us out
Additional thanks are extended to our adult volunteers, Mark and Emily for their fantastic support on this build.



Monday’s build was just another example of the fantastic character of the people who receive our ramps. The clients were so patient and appreciative of our service and made sure to let us know how pleased they were with their new ramp. Working with RAMPS is about working with the people. Without seeing the direct impact that our time and energy makes on their lives, our hard work wouldn’t be worth it. I continue to build for RAMPS because I know that these people who are less fortunate than I am need my help to have a better quality of life.

“Meeting all of you was so wonderful. Everyone was so happy and seemed just as excited about building the ramp as I was having it built for me…I’ve only had my ramp a few days and it has made getting in and out of my house so much easier. I no longer have to let my son lift me up each step. I can go out and not be worried about how I will get back inside…So, from the bottom of my heart I say, ‘Thank you.’”

This was my second RAMPS build and once again I loved it. After just a couple hours of hard work and a little problem solving, we changed someone’s life significantly. It feels amazing to help someone just leave their house with ease. Every day I step out of my house and it’s as simple as that, but for these people it takes a lot of effort – and I love how with just a few helping hands, we can fix that! Go RAMPS!
