Measure twice, cut once!
Fueled by over 100 volunteers, 775 mobility access ramps have been built for recipients in need in the Erie and Crawford Counties of Pennsylvania since 20010.377 are still in place, continuing to bless the recipients, giving them safe entrance and exit from their homes and the ability to participate in their communities as they choose. The need is great, 68 people are on our current waiting list for a ramp.
We collect gently worn and even new shoes. This year we conducted our 11th drive, gathering thousands of shoes with EUMA (Erie United Methodist Alliance). These shoes are distributed all over the world, blessing those in need with footwear and providing materials for small home businesses. Please call the office (814-774-4444) for donation site information.
Funding for All God's Children Ministries comes from individual gifts, fund raisers, grants and corporate donations.
We partner with a variety of organizations and businesses in our community and the world to identify and provide services to those with disabilities and their families.
In 2023, we have helped over 750 individuals gain access to their community by providing a much needed ramp.
Sandy B. and her daughter, Kirsten, moved to Erie PA in May of 2023. They had experienced many challenges and were excited to have a wide range of options available in Erie to meet Kirsten's needs. Kirsten's balance and ability to walk independently soon became more difficult. One day, Sandy found herself asking a new neighbor for help to get Kirsten up when she slipped and fell leaving their home.
"I was completely housebound unless I had someone to sit with Kirsten in the house. I couldn't get her out and into the car. Kirsten would lose her balance and both of us would fall backwards onto the cement."
Sandy heard about All God's Children Ministries' Ramps of Hope program from a friend. She called, completed the paperwork, and received a ramp on August 10, 2023, built by 10 volunteers on a very rainy Pennsylvania day.
"It's a beautiful ramp, big and wide. It really has made things so much better for us. It has been life changing for both of us. Kirsten can attend the Barber Center and goes to therapy and to see doctors. We can go grocery shopping and participate in what we need to do to have a life."
"The ramp opened up the house and our backyard to Kirsten. She goes through the house to the ramp (that is in the back of the house) and I thank God every time we zoom up and down."
"It's done so much for us that I never thought of until it happened to me. To have something positive happen to me after so much negative has restored my hope in the future and the kindness of strangers."
