Marsha, 57, had worked in a restaurants for years until she suffered a stroke three years ago. The attack left her severely impaired on her right side leaving her wheelchair bound. When there was a medical appointment, she would be transported on a stretcher across a series of platforms at the door, down three steps and back again on her return. Otherwise, Marsha did not leave the house. Linda, her daughter-in-law, had tried for two years to find help. “Now I can take her to her appointments.” “It was a regular thing with transportation. It helps having the ramp because now I can take her to her appointments. It will cut so much time out,” said Linda. Marsha’s impairment made it nearly impossible for her to regain any sense of a normal life. “There were places she didn’t want to go in an ambulance. Now she can go to Walmart in a regular car,” Linda said. “It’s more dignified.” Our mission is to transform the lives of those we serve and reconnect them to their communities. When asked how Marsha was doing now, Linda replied, “She’s doing great! Getting outside to sit in the sun. Enjoying getting out with ease.” Not all prisons come with bars. Some just have steps. “I want to say ‘Thank You’ to you guys because you’re a life saver. Marsha was starting to lose hope afraid she was going to be stuck in the house forever. It put a smile on her face. I pray you guys just keep doing what you’re doing and help the community,” Linda added.
