Free wheelchair ramps available from Appalachia Service Project

via The Ridgefield Press:

Free modular, pre-fab wheelchair ramps are available to disabled individuals and non-profit organizations through the Appalachia Service Project (ASP), sponsored by Jesse Lee United Methodist Church in Ridgefield and the Danbury United Methodist Church.

ASP is a Christian ministry that sends about 15,000 volunteers from across the country each year to make homes warmer, safer and drier for 400-500 low-income families in Central Appalachia.

One hundred and thirty-five high school students and adults went to West Virginia and Tennessee with the Ridgefield/Danbury group this year.

Information and applications are available at jesseleeasp.org.

I need a wheelchair ramp badly. I had a non-profit org helping me here. I live in Waterloo Iowa and the org was called Northeast Iowa for Independent living. They got closed down right before they were going to biuld my ramp. I have a hooveround wheelchair and can not get it outside so I can get around with it. Is there anyway that your org can help me? I will gladly talk to anyone about it. Please email me and let me know.
Thank you.
