Habitat for Humanity chapter also installs wheelchair ramps

FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — The Habitat for Humanity chapter that covers Webster and Humboldt counties builds homes for people in need and is adding another service: installing wheelchair ramps.

Executive director Howard Hartman of the Twin Rivers chapter told The Messenger (http://bit.ly/1Xo2xDT ) that ever since he arrived in the area in 2008, he’s noticed the need for the ramps. The new service begins this month.

People who will be getting ramps will be asked to provide “sweat equity” in return. Hartman says that can be done through helping the installation or through other methods, such as working at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore or providing lunch for construction volunteers.
