Mr. A

Roy had an interesting dilemma. He was in the process of obtaining a power scooter that he so desperately needed; but before doing so had to first show that he had a ramp at his mobile home that would allow him to enter and exit his home safely. Through a collaborative effort with the United Way of Effingham and GAP Ministries, LIFE was able to help build Roy his wheelchair ramp. Soon after, Roy received his scooter. Roy has been enjoying the outdoors a lot more ever since!
“Everything just came together beautifully!” said Mark Swift, LIFE’s Home Modification Coordinator. “It is a great example of the work performed by the LIFE team, and how we work with other organizations to help improve the lives of people with disabilities.”
Through a heavy Southern accent, Roy sums it up quite nicely. “I wasn’t able to get out previously, but now I can get out and go somewhere and see people.” I am very happy with LIFE and their partners with GAP Ministries and the United Way for the completion of my ramp. It has made a big difference in my life and makes it a whole lot easier.
