Habitat & Home Depot Foundation Partner Up to Build Veteran Ramp

Veteran Build

Home Depot Foundation and Habitat for Humanity teamed up on December 16th and 17th, building and installing a brand-new ramp in LaSalle, at the home of local Veteran Robert Beck and his wife Carmel. Robert utilizes a walker to get around, and this ramp will increase his ability to walk independently and safely as he comes and goes from his home. We are so happy to have the ability to help them!

 

No one should have to endure the struggle, stress, and pain of being unable to access their home safely and independently. Habitat Monroe’s ramp program serves people in need of safe and independent access in and out of their homes, and is a fantastic resource for many Veterans.

Habitat Monroe’s Project Serve program allows us to assist Veterans and Military families in the Monroe community, through home building, home repairs, and ramp assistance. Habitat is proud to have partnered with Home Depot Foundation.

During this build, Home Depot Foundation generously supplied construction materials, as well as volunteer labor for the build, while Habitat designed the ramp and directed the construction. Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County and Home Depot have a long-standing partnership and have completed many projects together.

Home Depot Foundation is the largest contributor to Habitat’s PROJECT SERVE program, which aims to serve Veterans through providing ramps, homes, and basic home repairs.
