Congressman Brad Wenstrup, along with volunteers from UPS and PWC, came together Friday to make an elderly veteran's home safe and accessible.  

Billy, a 77-year-old Korean War veteran, and his wife say they live in a very unsafe environment. Billy suffers from dementia and his wife's mobility is limited due to her severe osteoporosis. 

People Working Cooperatively (PWC), a non-profit organization that serves low income elderly and disabled homeowners, helped to fix the couple's mold problem and assisted in their need for a new sump pump, floor repair and bathroom modification. 

Wenstrup and volunteers from UPS built a new ramp for Billy and his wife.

Thanks to UPS, PWC, and Brad Wenstrup, the couple will be able to live safely in their own home.
