Last week, Krissy Mahan came to our offices with a toolbag and supplies in hand. After a couple of hours of de-installing, installing, tweaking, and remodeling, SRLP’s bathroom is more accessible to people with disabilities. Krissy has a couple more plans up her sleeve, but check out what she’s already done! Now we have:
- A lever-style door handle and button lock for greater accessibility
- Sound proof foam on the bathroom door so that folks with digestive sensitivity have greater privacy
- Lowered toilet paper and paper towel dispensers to make them more within reach
- Two full-length mirrors so people of all sizes can see how great they look
Thank you, Krissy, for putting in your time, skills, and resources to help us make SRLP accessible for our whole community!
