Habitat for Humanity Builds Wheelchair Ramp

Building Trades studentsStudents enrolled in Alfred State College’s Building Trades programs responded to a request from Marsha Patrick, director of the Head Start Program for Steuben and Yates Counties, for a wheelchair ramp that was needed at its facility on Main Street in Hornell. The Alfred State College Chapter of Habitat for Humanity decided to take on the wheelchair ramp as its fall project. Head Start provided all the materials and the ASC Chapter of Habitat provided all the labor, over the course of several weekends, to complete the project under the direction of Norm Ellis, Habitat Chapter adviser and ASC assistant professor, Building Trades.
