The Texas Ramp Project builds wheelchair ramps for disabled or elderly people who can’t afford to buy one. In a few hours on a Saturday morning, we give these folks the freedom to leave their home again - the home where they want to remain but whose steps have imprisoned them.

The Ramp Referral Process

If you are a social worker and/or healthcare professional -

Have a client who needs a ramp? You are in the right place. All you need to do is complete the online referral form to start the process.

Priority is given to clients from Hospice facilities, dialysis patients, and those who are living alone and are unable to exit their home. Those three priority classes have a "button" at the bottom of the referral form. If you feel your client needs priority and he/she does not fit any of these three categories, please indicate so (and why) in any of the free-form text boxes. A common example is an acute patient about to discharge from a medical facility to the home - e.g. auto accident amputee living in a mobile home, etc.

If you are someone who needs a ramp -

We cannot take your referral directly. We do not interact directly with potential clients. You will be MUCH better served if you ask your social worker or healthcare professional to make the referral to us, as he or she will already have a working relationship with us, and will already have established your physical and financial need.

Sidewalks, Inc. builds sidewalks in the City of San Antonio, Texas, through a cooperative effort of volunteers and donations of money and material resources. It began its work in 2006. The intention is to increase mobility within neighborhoods that have long suffered from the lack of infrastructure or dilapidated infrastructure.

Sidewalks are built in front of homes where residents are of low or moderate income. To date,10 sidewalk projects have been completed, all benefiting someone who is eldery or disabled/physically challenged, near a bus route and near an elementary school.

Projects selected must meet more than one of the following priorities:

  • In front of homes of people who are disabled/physically challenged
  • In front of homes of the elderly
  • On bus lines
  • Near Schools
  • On routes from residential neighborhood to commercial resources

All sidewalks are built within the requirements on permitting of the Unified Development Code of the City of San Antonio. Sidewalks, Inc. sees itself as a “Friend of The Public Works Department of the City of San Antonio”. The immediate focus is on sidewalks in length of about 50 feet, which is the standard size of a lot. Sidewalks, Inc. is a non-profit and funding is limited, therefore not all applications submitted are guaranteed a sidewalk.

If you are interested in applying please fill out the nomination form.

Comfy Casas provides minor home repairs and, various home appliances to low-income seniors and disabled adults.

Client referrals come from intake assessment coordinators, volunteers, and paid delivery drivers. These essential visits enable us to identify and address the clients' home safety needs. The coordinator conducts an initial walk-through in person or over the phone to discuss much-needed repairs with the client. Minor home projects completed by volunteers. Projects beyond the scope of this service are referred to other organizations.

One of the easiest things we can do is ensure the temperature in our clients' homes is seasonally appropriate. So that means providing ACs and heaters to ensure our clients stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. In 2020, we have helped 449 senior neighbors age comfortably and safely in their homes!

We are unable to accommodate major home repairs and electrical repairs.

To receive services from Comfy Casas:

  • You must be receiving meals from Meals on Wheels San Antonio.

The Warm Hearts, Warm Homes program is a locally-funded project that delivers a free space heater to older adults or veterans who have no safe source of heat inside their homes.

Thanks to the continued generosity and contributions from our fellow citizens - since 2009, the Warm Hearts program has been able to support over 100 homes, every year, across our 13-County service area.

To qualify, persons must be 60 years of age or older and a resident of one of the 13 counties in the AACOG Region. The recipient must also have no current, safe means of heating in their home, or the existing heating source is not working. A stove or oven is not considered a safe and adequate source of heating a home, as this regularly leads to numerous fires and casualties in our community.

For more information, or to request a heater, call the Alamo Service Connection at (210) 477-3275 (or toll free at 866-231-4922) or email for details.

The Weatherization Assistance program is designed to help low-income individuals overcome the high cost of energy through the installation of energy conservation measures. Although the program does not address major home repairs, it can help lower the amount of energy used in a home by enhancing the structure's thermal boundary, ultimately helping a home stay warm in the colder months and cold in the warmer months.

Qualification for weatherization assistance is a three-step process.

  1. The applicant's total household income must meet federal income eligibility requirements.
  2. The person completing the application must be a U.S. Citizen or show proof of eligible Resident Alien Status to receive federal benefits.
  3. The home must be structurally sound (no major roof repairs, plumbing leaks, foundation problems, faulty electrical wiring, or similar structural issues).
