Elevate! Friends Home Campaign

A Campaign for Accessibility


Currently the Friends Home building has a single small elevator which severely limits accessibility:

  • Only a few residents at a time with walkers
  • Only one wheelchair at a time resulting in a backup during mealtime and activities
  • These inconveniences limit wheelchair use
  • Hard to get to second floor and main activities room on a lower level


Build a separate elevator tower and larger elevator onto the main building:

  • Larger elevator will accommodate multiple wheelchairs and a gurney.
  • Place at the end of a hallway so that residents will have an easier way to get between floors,
  • New elevator will give access to the attic as a sizable storage area


All of FHK will be FULLY accessible to residents, families, friends:

  • Opens up two stories to wheelchair use and provides access to all programs
  • Provides gurney accessibility
  • Speeds up resident flow between floors
  • Increases the number of rooms designated as wheelchair accessible
  • Expands our census potential
  • Limits stairway risks.
