For Immediate Release:

Habitat for Humanity Teams Up with The Home Depot Foundation


Monroe, MI – January 11, 2022– Habitat for Humanity of Monroe recently partnered with the Home Depot Foundation to build a disabled Veteran a ramp.


On December 16th and 17th, 2021,  the Home Depot Foundation and Habitat for Humanity built and installed a brand-new ramp in LaSalle, at the home of local Veteran Robert Beck, and his wife Carmel. Robert moves around easiest with a walker, and the ramp will be of great help to him.

The Home Depot Foundation supplied construction materials, as well as volunteers 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.  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.

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.
