Roers Builds Ramps For Family

Life for a Fargo mom and her son with special needs will soon be easier thanks to some helping hands from local contractors.

Crews from the Home Builders Association of Fargo-Moorhead and the Remodelers Council are spending the day at a Habitat for Humanity home in North Fargo.

They're putting in two wheelchair accessible ramps that will help out April Nelson and her two children.

Her youngest, 8-year-old Blake, suffers from cerebral palsy and will soon be bound to a wheelchair.
 
But after these volunteers are done, April and Blake can wheel inside their home through either the front or back doors.

Dave Anderson- Dave Anderson Construction: “I think the biggest benefit to me is working with others and at the end of the day, the biggest reward is to see that person in that wheelchair get to use the ramp for the first time and a lot of times, that's a pretty exciting thing for them.”
 
A grant from the city of Fargo helped fund this ramp project.
