Commercial Wheelchair Lift: Plans are underway to install a commercial wheelchair lift at the steps in front of the Parlor kitchen. Though challenges exist throughout the building, this area, specifically, has presented an unsafe passage for many. An initiative has been taken to raise funds for it’s installment, so please contact Joanne Solomon or David Wines for opportunities to be a part of this effort!
The Property Committee is also involved in the fund raising effort by recruiting participants for the “Energizing Indiana” home energy assessments. The assessment is open to ALL Indiana counties, so we hope to extend our reach to all families and friends of Broadway to participate in this fund raising opportunity. For every assessment completed for a Broadway household, the church will receive $25 for the “accessibility fund,” which will go toward installing the wheelchair lift. Flyers are available in the church office, along with a sign-up sheet, if you would like more information or to begin scheduling your assessment.
