Lowe’s Supports Critical Repairs for a Family in Need

We recently received a grant from Lowe’s, which we used to provide accessibility modifications and critical repairs for a low-income family in South Minneapolis.  The homeowner had suffered a traumatic fall and ended up with a broken neck, broken arm, and many contusions. He spent quite some time recovering in the hospital/rehabilitation facility, but could not come home until the home was modified to make it accessible. Specifically, he needed an exterior ramp and modifications made to the bathroom.  With the support provided by Lowe’s and the hard work of our volunteers, we were able to build the ramp and modify the interior of the home so the homeowner can return home and live safely and independently in his own home and neighborhood.
