Representing the Kingdom of God to the mobility-impaired
The mission of EmmanuWheel is to provide wheelchair ramps and home modifications to wheelchair bound individuals who cannot afford the cost of such modifications.
By addressing the specific needs of wheelchair bound individuals, it is the intention of EmmanuWheel to share the love of Christ in a practical way. EmmanuWheel hopes to create a lasting improvement in their lives.
When Ms. H. lost her right foot, she also lost her mobility. Ms. H. was using a piece of plywood to get in and out of her home. Many of EmmanuWheel’s clients use a similar technique. Unfortunately, plywood rots almost immediately creating a slick surface and an unsafe ramp. Ms. H’s family worked with EmmanuWheel’s director, Jeff Kerby, to build her ramp. Ms. H’s family promised to “pay it forward” by helping with a future ramp build for someone else.
Before and After
Ms. S has a 21-year-old son with cerebral palsy. Her front steps were dangerous for anyone to use—and especially dangerous for a young man with cerebral palsy. Ms. S asked us if we could fix her stairs. We told Ms. S that the team from Mt. Horeb United Methodist Church would not fix her stairs. Instead, they would replace her stairs. The team worked all day and into the night to make sure that she would be proud of her stairs and ramp
