A message from Vertical Member, Nora Moss:
I have recently been transferred from Madison to Holmes County as a Home Health P.T. where the majority of my patients are on fixed incomes with poor community resources available.
Holmes County does not have the resources to assist patients with building ramps, adding handrails or performing other modifications to homes to remain in proper living standards.
My request is to develop a team to help provide these services to these people to allow them to leave their home without fear of falling/injury. If we could pick a designated number of projects each quarter, I feel we can really be the hands and feet of God and provide greatly needed services to this population. For compliance with ADA guidelines, we will need someone with building experience that is familiar with building specifications and drawing up plans, donations/fund raisers and volunteers to provide the manual labor. If others want to get involved that cannot provide physical labor, they can provide sack lunches and other refreshments.
I already have identified 3 families that would benefit from our assistance, 1 person that needs a ramp and 2 that need a handrail added to concrete steps. Let’s get started today!
