Texas Ramps Project Texas Ramp Project is an organization that builds free wheelchair ramps at individuals’ homes. The recipients include clients from hospicefacilities, dialysis patients, and those who live alone and are unable to exit their home safely.
The Texas Ramp Project was founded in 2006 with the mission of establishing organizations throughout Texas-based on the practices of the Dallas Ramp Project. The Dallas Ramp Project was initiated in the 1980s by the Richardson, Texas, Kiwanis club and operated as a non-profit entity until December 31, 2012, when it merged into the Texas Ramp Project.
Today, Texas Ramp Project has branches in more than 20 Texas cities and serves clients in more than 100 counties across the state. Since 2006, the organization and its volunteers have built nearly 4,200 wheelchair ramps. All materials and tools are provided, and experienced builders assist with the work.
