Do you, or someone you know, need a home ramp?

Home Builders Foundation is accepting applications for it's Blitz Build of home ramps.  Please contact Johathan jkamm@hbfdenver.org for more information.

 

Home Builders Foundation changes lives by providing home modifications which help individuals remain in their home, regain independence and dignity. This program is for home owners exhibiting a financial need in the 8-county (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Elbert and Jefferson) Denver metro area that are in need of home modifications related to accessibility. There is no cost to the recipient.

 

The Home Builders Foundation is currently seeking out applications for people needing ramps to be completed during our 2016 Blitz Build!

In 2011, the HBF organized the inaugural Blitz Build, where seven ramps were built for seven families across the Denver metro area in just three days. The Blitz Build was a huge success for the recipients, the HBF, and all of the companies involved. Since 2011, more than 65ramps have been completed during Blitz Build weekends, mobilizing hundreds and volunteers and impacting recipients and their extended networks of care. In 2016, we plan on building on the success of the past five years by completing 15 (or more!) ramps onAugust 25th, 26th and 27th 2016

 Even though the HBF builds ramps year-round, during our Blitz Build event, we are able to build so many in just 3 days by mobilizing up to 200 volunteers to complete the work. We have the capacity to do 15 (possibly more!) ramps so we’re reaching out to our community partners to spread the word about referring possible ramp projects to us.

 If you have a client, colleague or family member who is in need of a ramp, please fill have them fill out the attached application for assistance (recently updated, so please save and use this one moving forward!) and return it to the HBF. Note: Any ramp applications received from now through June 2016 will be considered for the Blitz Build. Projects need to meet the requisite qualifications and will be reviewed on a first-come, first-saved basis of the completed application.

Please also feel free to pass along the attached flyer and application to your networks.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
