Wheelchair Ramp Program

Funding provided by the Community Development Block Grant Program

Each year, the CIL in partnership with Christians Concerned for the Community (CCC) builds as many wheelchair ramps as possible.  Construction of wheelchair ramps is made possible through funding from the following organizations; City of Gainesville ~ Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, University of Florida Community Campaign and The Sam Schmidt Foundation.

Our ramp program runs throughout the year and we maintain a database for all wheelchair ramp requests.  As we have limited resources, staff continually writes grants and conducts other fund raising activities so that fewer people have to placed on the waiting list.

If you are interested in making a donation towards ramp materials or volunteering on an upcoming build, please contact Mark Brisbane at 352-378-7474 or 1-800-265-5724.
