I'm a grad student in a Doctorate program for physical therapy. We had a family with a special needs child come into our school to help us students learn about physical therapy for children with special needs. While working with this little girl,I learned that the woman taking care of this little girl was not the mother but a very kind hearted individual. I also found out that the child’s wheel chair stayed outside because the primary caretaker has a bad back and it was too hard to lift it up the stairs. Well wheel chair ramps are crazy expensive to build and this brave woman could not afford that luxury. So I got all my ryobi one+ tools together, found a bunch of used wood on craigslist and made several trips in my suv with it packed full of reclaimed deck wood stacked inside, and strapped on top I got the wood home. I built the ramp sections in my garage. It was a great break from studying all the time. Well it took me almost 3 months and about $100 of my own money (well uncle sam's money as it was part of my student loan) but the child can get around in her home, the “mom” can go places with just the child where previous she needed another adult to help getting the child and her equipment into her car. The ramp I was able to build provided them with a new found freedom. It was a long process but helping out someone in need is always worth the blood sweat and tears.
