Building a wheelchair rampMy heart breaks when I learn of a special-needs family that requires a ramp at home… but insurance just won't cover it. Well, that problem is on its way to being solved! Our friends at Handi-Ramp have compiled a national directory which includes a list of more than 200 charitable US organizations that offer free or discount services to build ramps for people with disabilities – these groups are happy to help those without the means to fund and build a ramp themselves. If your home is in need of a ramp, take a look at the directory and see if help is available in your area!

I've been trying to get my Doctor to give me a letter for a mobility scooter for a while. I thought it was just back problems but I recently found out it is arthritis in my spine. I thought surgery would help. Doctors tell me no. Finally got my scooter two months ago. I haven't been out of the house on it. I've been searching for information on how to get a ramp for quiet some time CAN YOU HELP PLEASE?

My husband needs a ramp, but not a full-sized ramp. A hard rubber wedge ramp would do it, but my insurance says it's not medically necessary. Does anyone provide help with that sort of ramp?

Hi I'm looking for help for my 30 yr old daughter who is severely disabled with cerebral palsey. I have a van but I can't get her in it because theres no lift and no tie down system inside the van. Do you know how I can get help with this? Thank you and God Bless.
