Donna, a self-advocate who uses a wheelchair and has a service dog, was in need of a ramp to allow her to enter and exit her home. She also needed a fence for her backyard so her service dog could go outside safely and not run in the street.

Durham FIF partnered with Dickerson Fencing who built Donna a fence, and the Knights of Columbus who built a ramp. Now, Donna has peace of mind – she can access her home and her beloved service dog can play in her yard.
