Not Even Rain Dampens the Volunteer Spirit
of this Team of RTQC Heroes in Bettendorf

Stephanie Gaines contacted RTQC inquiring about the possibility of having a wheelchair ramp installed at her home. In her application, she stated that a wheelchair ramp was a critical enabler allowing her to maintain "her independence by allowing her to get in and out of the house.”

The request was reviewed and selected to be one of several projects performed as part of Rebuilding Together's 2016 National Rebuilding Month in April.

After 100 hours of battling damp and raining conditions, twelve volunteers not only constructed the wheelchair ramp, but also performed several improvements inside the house to improve safety, accessibility, independence, and well-being.
