Wheelchair Ramp Build
When Joe*, a wheelchair-bound patient, was released from the hospital, his family had all the details of his care worked out except one: how to exit the house safely, especially in the case of an emergency.
Community Alliance of South County received the call from Joe's medical provider and
went into action. We assembled a team of skilled and dedicated volunteers from several South County area churches and built him a beautiful ramp.
Now Joe enjoys greater independence and safer entry and exit from the home.

More than 20 volunteers lent a hand to make this project a success. Community Alliance of South County members are grateful for the assistance of the hard working volunteers from:
Saint James Episcopal Parish
Lothian Church of God
Boy Scout Troop 840
and the homeowner.
Countless hours went into this project and its many steps: planning; site visits; obtaining permits; purchasing and delivering supplies materials and supplies; prepping the site;
and of course, assembling the ramp on one long,
hot Saturday. It indeed took a village!
