Imagine suddenly being confined to a wheelchair and living in a home that requires steps for access. That is the frequent dilemma for area homeowners requesting the services of Rebuilding Together Henry County’s wheelchair ramp program. Thanks to our dedicated ramp crew, over the past 6 years 108 ramps have been installed. Our “ramp crew” will install our 150th ramp soon.
Part of our home modifications program, the wheelchair ramps give our neighbors with mobility issues an easier way to come and go from home, allowing them to travel to the doctor, to the store, to visit family or to just get outside for a change of scenery. Constructed out of treated lumber, the modular sections “float” on the ground and are constructed to meet all safety and American with Disabilities Act codes and increase access to the home. Rebuilding Together returns annually to provide weatherization for all exposed wood.
Our low-incline ramps afford persons with mobility issues to come and go as they need.

Temporary “floats” on the ground.
