Jonuel’s smile just got a little bigger thanks to his new temporary ramp funded through Ohio Department of Medicaid’s Ohio Temporary Ramp Project. The Ability Center specializes in improving quality of life for individuals with disabilities through our seven programs. Our Home Accessibility Program enhances access to the community and creates a safer environment at home. Jonuel, who has cerebral palsy, had no path to get in and out of his home safely. Family members had to lift him in and out of his chair to be mobile. That has now changed thanks to the installation of the new ramp provided to the Melendez family in the spring of 2018. "I am very grateful to The Ability Center for the help of the beautiful ramp that was offered to my son,” shares Jonuel’s mother.

ACT is thankful to connect Jonuel’s family and others like his, with this life-changing resource that will impact his life for years to come.
