Our wheelchair ramp and home modification program provides eligible Fairfield County residents with mobility disabilities an opportunity to regain the full use of their homes and property. This service is free for those who qualify.
Construction is performed by a large group of knowledgeable and experienced volunteers called the SMART Team. FCdCP pays for the materials, utilizing funds from the CDBG Grant and River Valley Rods and Customs-Fund Raiser Rods for Ramps.
The SMART Team constructs each ramp to be safe and removable. This includes:
Porch-to-ground & Indoor Ramps
Threshold Ramps & Door Transitions
Switchback Ramps (for places with limited space)
Volunteering to help build ramps is a fun, easy way to make a meaningful difference in your community.
What do Ramp Team Volunteers Do?
Our Ramp Team Volunteers help to build ramps for people with
disabilities in Fairfield County.
Volunteers meet at the home where the ramp will be installed to help
measure, dig, and cut, carry, screw, and nail wooden boards to make a
ramp. Builds normally only take a few hours and are completed by early
Volunteering is a fun experience, a great way to get outdoors and active,
and provides a fantastic opportunity to help those in need in a
meaningful, personal way.
What does it take to be a Volunteer?
Our Ramp Volunteers are dependable, caring, and love to help others.
No experience or supplies are needed, just a willingness to lend a hand.
Volunteers must provide their own transportation to and from build sites,
which are always within Fairfield County.
Volunteers do not need to make any long-term commitments. You can
join us for one build or several - it's up to you!
