Story

When Fay first called us for help, we thought getting a group of builders out to help she and her husband would be straight-forward.  The ramp she and her husband were using was not a ramp, but a piece of plywood nailed down to a frame over top of the home steps.  Not only was it plywood – it was rotted plywood with a hole in it (the hole was covered by an outdoor rug for safety reasons).

There was one stumbling block…her husband’s dementia made his behavior too unreliable for us to feel comfortable having a high school build team on site.  We made the unusual decision to do a staff build as we knew how critical providing this family with a safe ramp would be for them.
