Door County Habitat for Humanity is making it easier for you to get out of your house. The organization kicked off its RAMP UP Door County project earlier this year to address the accessibility needs of many Door County residents. The aluminum ramps are leased out to homeowners that may have a temporary accessibility issue at their homes. Funds raised by leasing the ramp go back to the organization. Door County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Lori Allen says the program will assist homeowners in getting the help they need sooner than if they were to have a ramp built and installed by volunteers.
RAMP UP Door County was started thanks in part to a grant made possible by 100+ Women Who Care and the Door County chapter of the Philanthropic Education Organization. Door County Habitat for Humanity is fundraising to purchase a second ramp, which typically costs between $8,000 and $9,000.
