HBADE is a Delaware business organization with members that cover every aspect of residential home construction and renovations. Although the primary focus of HBADE is to educate, advocate and organize events to improve the quality of services the members provide, HBADE also seeks to give back to the community when it can.
This year the Associates Council of HBADE will be working with Sussex Vo-Tech students and instructors to design, build and install a wheelchair ramp in Sussex County for a deserving person. Military veterans are preferred, although anyone can apply.
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 Sussex 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.
