Do-It-Yourself Home Accessibility Demonstration Day Sat., Aug.2, 7 AM – 12 PM at the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market

July 24, 2014 (Greensboro, NC) – Have you or a family member ever struggled with accessibility or mobility issues right within your own home? Join Community Housing Solutions (CHS) downtown at the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market on Saturday, August 2nd, from 7:00am to noon to learn about solutions to these challenges.

The CHS construction staff is CAPS certified and will be having hands on demonstrations on how to build an accessible picnic table, install grab bars, lever door handles and ADA height toilets. Come swing a hammer and help us build an accessible picnic table, which will be donated to the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market. “We are excited to have Community Housing Solutions as our special guest in order to build awareness of the importance of accessibility, while also helping us to make our facility more access-friendly,” stated Lee Mortensen, Executive Director of the Market. CHS has up fitted a retired US Postal Van equipped with tools and equipment. Look for the retro van on the Lindsay St. lawn to participate in the demonstration and for more information.
