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. In addition, we raised $850 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. The 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.
Here is our client bathroom, functional but small, and not accessible to individuals with major mobility challenges.
