Housing Advocacy & Assistance
In America, access is always about architecture and never about human beings. - John Hockenberry
You are faced with numerous challenges in finding adequate housing to meet your disability needs. Homes may require the installation of a ramp or grab bars to increase accessibility. Our staff has access to resources to conduct home modifications for qualified individuals.
DAC can provide assistance with:
- Landlord-tenant disputes
- Home modifications
- Applications for housing assistance
- Reasonable accommodation requests
- Transitioning from a nursing home to your home
The Ramp Project promotes a vision of an accessible world by reducing barriers to home accessibility. This service also promotes the Independent Living philosophy. Our loan project provides used modular ramps to low income people who need them. Originally funded with a grant from Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and the Moscow Giving Circle, ongoing fundraising is in effect so we can continue to purchase ramp components for future use. DACNW partners with Palouse Habitat for Humanity and Interlink to design and installation of the ramps.
Modular ramps can be configured in a variety of shapes to accommodate landscaping.
The ramps are easy to install in a few hours.
The ramps are safe with a 1 in 12″ rise according to ADA regulations
Disability Action Center NW is a partner provider of the QRamp™ modular access ramp solution. You can get one of these ramps through Medicaid or private pay. Easily installed in a few hours, this attractive ramp is proud to offer the exclusive ThruFlow™ surface to allow snow and rain and debris to pass through. Strong and quiet it has the added safety benefit of glow in the dark post caps.
