Home Modifications

One of the most significant challenges persons with disabilities face is the simple inability to leave their own home. We partner with consumers and their community to build ramps and do home modifications. We have information on ADA ramp guidelines and suggested materials that we can give to you to make the process easier. If you or someone you know is in need of a home modification, please contact Tonia Clayton at 706-314-0008 or at tclayton@nwgacil.org.

This program to provides refurbished assistive technology (AT) such as computers and CCTVs and refurbished/sanitized durable medical equipment (DME) such as walkers, shower chairs and wheelchairs.  For many persons with disabilities, AT/DME can make a significant contribution to an independent life. Please contact Kathy Baker at 706-314-0008 or kbaker@nwgacil.org if you are interested in participating in this program (whether through donating equipment or receiving equipment).
