Special Project at Forward House 


Accessibility Project (Phase Two)

We are delighted to announce that Forward House has received a Grant-in-Aid through the Regional District of Nanaimo to start our 'Moving Forward with Accessibility' project (phase two). We have also received generous donations from the four local Rotary Clubs: Rotary Club of Qualicum Beach, Rotary Club of Parksville, Parksville a.m. Rotary, and Sunrise Rotary. We also raised more than $700 from sales of our Client Art Calendars.

This phase of the project will see our tiny client bathroom renovated into a fully accessible one that will accommodate individuals who have limited mobility and/or use wheelchairs.

Before...

Here is our client bathroom, functional but small, and not accessible to individuals with major mobility challenges.

 

 

 

This renovation will involve removing a bathtub/shower; moving a doorway; pushing out a wall; adding tile, cabinets, light fixtures, and mobility aids; moving plumbing; and replacing flooring. If you or anyone you know might be able to volunteer services or donate supplies, we would gratefully accept your help. Call us at 250.954.0785 or email us at execdir@forwardhouse.com.
