Changing Lives, One Ramp at a Time

SAWs© is a nonprofit, volunteer organization founded in 2003. Originally started in Indianapolis, our organization serves clients across Indiana, as well as Arizona and Virginia. We specialize in building wooden wheelchair ramps for low-income, permanently disabled individuals. With the support of our donors and volunteers, lives are changed one ramp at a time and in less than six hours we transform a client’s life FOREVER.

Matthew 25:35-36, 40 "...I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. … Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.."

Building Community Transforming Lives Accessing the World

SAWs© builds high-quality, removable and reusable wooden ramps for low-income, permanently disabled individuals who use wheelchairs, scooters or walkers. Our work is transformative for the ramp recipient and their caregivers as well as for our volunteers who witness the joy-filled moment when an individual regains freedom. Join us to experience it for yourself.
