  1. I use a wheelchair and can’t walk at all from a car wreck in 1995. I just bought a used mobile home and I need a ramp built and was wondering if this is something your organization would help do or could provide for low income persons with disablilities? Thanks for any information you can give.

    Sincerely,

    Stephanie Dodd
