The Associates Council of HBADE is proud to announce they will be working this Fall with Sussex Vo-Tech students and instructors to design, build and install a wheelchair ramp in Sussex County for a deserving person, preferably a military veteran.
As you recall, we worked last summer with Hodgson Vo-Tech students in New Castle County to build and install a ramp for an elderly recipient in New Castle County.
The ramp will be designed by the high-school students, in consultation with their teachers and our Associate members expertise to guide them on ADA and accessibility guidelines. Then they will continue to build and install the ramp, while learning hands-on about construction and obtaining the necessary County building permits. In addition, all of this will be provided at no cost to the recipient as the construction materials will be donated by HBADE members and our Associates Council members will donate their time and expertise.
