  • Temporary Ramp Installation Volunteer
    The Disability Network is looking for a part-time volunteer to assist with the agencies’ temporary ramp program. The agency has temporary ramps that are installed in homes for free throughout Genesee County for a period of up to three months. The volunteer would need to survey the house and install the temporary ramp, plus pick up the ramp after the borrower is finished or upon the three-month limit. The ramps are made of aluminum and can be picked up relatively easily.
