Access North

Access North is a part of The Ramp Project, which provides ramps for people with disabilities on a sliding fee scale. Many times this project makes the difference between an individual coming home or living in an institution. The ramps are modular, made of wood, require no footings, and can be temporary or more permanent. Ramps are installed by a project supervisor and community volunteers, this makes them cost effective (about a third of what it costs to have a typical contractor build one).
