Ramp Construction Program

 

RAMP CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM

WILS will assist in the modifications to the entrance of a home so it is accessible to a person with a disability. WILS will provide the material for the ramp to qualified participant; we have a full time ramp builder on staff and WILS will coordinate volunteers to assist. Ramps must be built according to ADA specifications; our consumer’s safety is first and foremost.

 

WILS budget is limited and need is high. WILS will be able to assist only those requests made while funds for the program are available. The Director of Program Services along with the ramp coordinator and ramp builder review all request for ramp construction and prioritize based on each consumers need.
