We Ramped it Up!

Friday marked the last day for the Ramp it Up! 2011 program. We had about 25 local teens come together on two sites in Prince George’s County to build access ramps for low-income, disabled homeowners. The local teens learned construction skills and about affordable housing and accessibility issues. The ramps were built for a seven-year-old boy with cerebral palsy and another was built for a disabled mother and her disabled, adult daughter. Check out photos from the week below and also see the great coverage we got on ABC news. Want to learn more about the program, click here.

The projects were sponsored in part by JYPI and the National Fair Housing Alliance.

Much thanks to donated services from Century Associates, Michael Holt/Architects, Snider and Associates, Studio: CrowleyHall PLLC, Tenleytown Trash, and TW Perry.
