BENEFITING: L'arche Chicago
EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2016
Our dear friend, Noah, needs a wheelchair ramp built at his home. Noah lives in a home owned by L'Arche Chicago in Forest Park, Illinois. L'Arche is an agency with homes for adults with developmental disabilities. L'Arche is different than most other group homes for many reasons. L'Arche is founded on the truth that all people need love and friendship. Our homes are filled with loving assistants who have chosen to share their lives and live life with L'Arche core members (people with developmental disabilities.) Our home at 541 Ferdinand needs a ramp built for Noah to safely exit and enter his home. We will need to add a door to the side of the home which we will build the ramp out of to meet ADA requirements. This is due to the front and back doors of our home being too narrow. We are so excited to ask our friends to help us get this ramp built so Noah can have the freedom he needs to enter and exit his home throughout the day. Right now, two assistants who live with Noah, are helping him up and down the steps, several times a day. Please help us give Noah back his freedom!
