The Housing roject was formed in 2002 in response to the steady stream of calls and e-mail messages IPAT received from people asking where and how they could get money, materials or other help to install exterior ramps, widen doorways, obtain equipment or retrofit homes and apartments. Most inquiries came from people whose family or friends had experienced an accident, injury or disability that limited day-to-day functioning and activities. They had scoured their communities looking for home modification programs, only to find that, with few exceptions, none existed outside of Iowa's largest cities. The lack of programs and information left people trapped in their houses and apartments or forced them to go into debt, move elsewhere, sell their homes or enter a nursing home.
