Cheyenne Village Ramp

HBA Cares partnered with the local nonprofit organization Cheyenne Village to build three ramps in a home for disabled individuals.  Cheyenne Village provides assistance and support to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The ramps will help this house to become ADA compliant and move-in ready for Cheyenne Village residents.  One ramp was built inside of the garage, a second one in the front of the house, and a third one around the back of the house.  Volunteers from Independent Construction, J&M Cleaning, C& C Sand and Stone, Pryor Flooring and Vanguard Homes all came out to help build the ramps. 

A big thank you to all of our donors who made this project possible: Builders FirstSource, Cedar Creek, Simpson Strong-Tie, and Allweather wood/Humboldt Redwood.  All in all, over $3,500 in materials were donated!       

A Safe Place To Play

A Safe Place To Play

Special needs children are presented with many challenges, especially on the playground. In many instances, special equipment is needed which is not found in traditional play settings. In January 2018, a special playground project was implemented by HBA Cares at Special Kids Special Families’ Zach’s Place program.

A Ramp for the Armstrongs

A Ramp for the Armstrongs

When Chuck Armstrong received a letter of recognition from the Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs in 1957 (known then as the Colorado Springs Home Builders Association) for a heroic act he performed at a local pool, he didn’t imagine that 59 years later he would in turn be thanking the HBA for extending a helping hand to him.
