Veteran Leroy Cason lives on Little River Trail in Blackshear, Georgia.

He uses a wheelchair and had to crawl in and out of his house to enter or leave.

Not anymore. Thanks to six members of  Haywood Church Men’s Ministry, Cason can now leave his home with a little more dignity after the group built a wheelchair ramp, free of charge, 

It took all of one day to build the ramp, giving Cason the mobility he needs to live a better life.
