LIFTT receives donation of a van with a wheelchair lift
Living Independently for Today & Tomorrow (LIFTT) would like to thank Jim Davis of Great Falls for donating a 2006 Ford Freestar van equipped with a wheelchair lift. The vehicle previously belonged to Jim’s sister Patty Davis who lives in Billings and was a one-time consumer of LIFTT.
LIFTT looks forward to putting the van to good use as our team ventures back out into the communities we serve in the coming weeks and months.
April 2021 Newsletter: An FAQ on LIFTT & Home Modifications
Every consumer at LIFTT has unique needs in terms of their disability and what they might require for them to live independently, including home modification. Here are a few questions and answers to help if you are considering a necessary change in your living arrangements.
How do you know if you qualify to receive the modifications?
Usually, your doctor can provide written support for the need, and then LIFTT can help you with the application process to receive one of these modifications.
Is there financial help available for home modification?
Clients can either pay for their own modifications, obtain a low-interest loan (Montana Assistive Technology Loan), or you can ask LIFTT to help you apply for grant funding.
How long does it take to complete a modification project?
The completion time can take a couple of months to as many as six months depending on the type or size of the project and if an application for grant funding is needed.
Who do I contact to learn more about accessibility modifications services?
Call 406-259-5181 and speak with the receptionist. She will record your information and put your request through a short protocol, and you will receive a return call from an Independent Living Specialist within two business days.
