Volunteers Build Ramp for Woman in Odessa

An Odessa woman will now be able to leave her house without assistance thanks to volunteers who helped build a ramp at her home.
An Odessa woman will now be able to leave her house without assistance thanks to volunteers who helped build a ramp at her home.

The project was completed as partnership between the Able Center for Independent Living and the Texas Ramp Project.

The organizations build ramps for people who need them but can't afford them.

They are currently building about one ramp every three months.

“we are doing this we are helping people get out of their homes that are trapped inside their home and this isn't costing the tax payer any money, this is all volunteer labor,” said Marilyn Hancock, Executive Director at Able Center for Independent Living.

About 15 volunteers showed up this weekend in Odessa, but organizers say they are always in need of more volunteers or money to increase the number of ramps being built.
