Ramp Program

Ramps - Provide necessary handicap ramps for disabled Senior Citizens with emphasis on those with low or fixed incomes and critical need. Ramps are built using volunteer labor on regularly scheduled dates.  A site visit is made by a skilled volunteer or staff member to assess the home environment and critical need for injury prevention.  At that time, it is also estimated what material, labor, and equipment will be required to complete the project.  Once the assessment is complete, the project is coordinated with volunteer organizations and scheduled for installation.  In 2008 alone, Habitat for Safe Seniors performed 22 handicap ramp projects.
