29 Oct All Points Employees Lead the Way in Volunteer Efforts to Assist the Aging and Homebound
Scott Stevens, Graphic Information System (GIS) Specialist on our MITS II contract, is known for his volunteerism, and once again, he’s leading the charge to help his Huntsville community. For eight years, Scott has worked with the NASA MSFC Office of Center Operations (OCO) as part of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) Care Assurance System for the Aging and Homebound (CASA) Wheelchair Ramp Team. CASA provides food, fans, winterization, social visits, transportation for doctor visits, supplies, yard work, handicap “grab” bars, and accessibility solutions for the elderly and other homebound people. Recently the team was tasked to participate in the annual wheelchair ramp build, and since Scott leads CASA ramps throughout the year and the CFC option was available, Steve proposed that the ramps be built as a team across Center Operations. Together, he and team members Roy Malone, Gary Humphrey, Brian Roberson, William Berry, Dakota, Richard Robins, Farley Davis, Carl Williams, and Steve Glover took on the Comanche Trail ramp project (pictured) with great enthusiasm. Thanks to Scott’s in-depth organization and leadership, this ramp was built from beginning to end in about four hours!
“Working together on a project like this has been a great team building experience,” said Scott. “We have developed friendships across several organizations in OCO. Most importantly, we have been able to bless clients with renewed mobility. A threshold, ramp, or steps can be a major hurdle for folks with a disability or aging’s loss of mobility. Clients are truly grateful for these ramps.”
The team worked with CASA to identify the project location, scope the work, and build some of the key foundation components. CASA also provided all the necessary materials through donations. For more information about CASA or to sign up to volunteer, visit https://casamadisoncty.org/.
