Habitat & The Home Depot Foundation Build Veteran Ramp

Veteran Build

Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County partnered with the Home Depot Foundation on March 8th and 9th to construct a ramp at a local veteran’s home. 

Rosalie Stewart lives in Stony Point in Newport, with her husband, Virgil. She is a military mom, with her son Joe being an honorably discharged Air Force Veteran. Rosalie was recently confined to a wheelchair and was essentially homebound due to lack of accessibility in and out of her home.

The ramp build was completed after The Home Depot Foundation generously donated and delivered the construction supplies. This two-day event utilized volunteers from Home Depot of Woodhaven. The 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.

“Oh, the sense of freedom that came, as I realized I am going to be able to do some things that I love to do now, like go to church, go shopping, and return to work when I am strong enough,” says Rosalie. “I am so grateful for The Home Depot Foundation, and their part as well. I pray blessings on all of you. God has proven how much He loves me through the actions of Habitat Monroe and Project Serve.”
