Shanae Roberts: Um I’ve known Bob since shelter. He just moved in in May. Okay. So when he first came, he was on crutches. He was needing a procedure done medically and through COVID. It was prolonged, canceled appointments. And then with his housing moving, he kind of let it stay to the side. So his condition worsened over the last year or two. It’s declining his quality of life.
Rev. Cannon: This Healy House was a former rectory of Saint Albert’s and it wasn’t being used. It houses residents who are sort of transitioning. Some of them stay here for a couple of years. Some less and some more, actually.
Patrick Ronan: Our mission is all about opening doors and opportunities when maybe people elsewhere have had the door closed on them.
Shanae: So everyone in the house helps, they’ll do his laundry. They take his trash out. They run to the store and get his snacks or play his lottery numbers, whatever he wants all done. But I know that he wants to be able to…
Brian: Yeah he wants his independence back.
Brian: So what is this ramp going to do for him?
Shanae: Give him mobility, freedom to leave the house.
Bob: Hopefully within a month I can get into Mass General and get my, my hip done.
Dolores: Wow, how does this feel, Bob?
Bob: First time I’ve been out of the house since July!
