Board of Directors

The WRAP Board of Directors is comprised of members of our community partners.

Guiding Principles

The WRAP Board of Directors provides organizational leadership and strategic vision under WRAP’s three guiding principles:

  1. Together Everyone Achieves More (TEAM) – Teamwork and collaboration are the best ways to address any need.
  2. Win-Win – All efforts and outcomes are mutually beneficial to all involved.
  3. 3 R’s (Recycle, Reduce, and Reuse) – Make every effort to recycle and reuse ramps so multiple individuals can benefit while reducing landfill use.

2019 WRAP Board of Directors

I have always believed that volunteerism is the backbone of our country. WRAP is an amazing organization that is almost completely powered by volunteers. These volunteers completely change the lives of our clients by freeing them from their home through home access in a matter of hours. They deliver hope and joy. They live the Golden Rule every day. There is no feeling like seeing a client confined to their home, free on their ramp for the first time. I am so proud of the work WRAP does in our community and humbled to be a tiny part of it.

Therapy Supervisor
UnityPoint at Home – Home Care

As a Physical Therapist, I had worked with WRAP to get ramps for patients in need. I was able to see what a difference WRAP could make in someone’s life. When the opportunity arose to give back, I was thrilled to become part of the board. In my role with UnityPoint at Home, I continually recommend WRAP when a situation warrants it. They fill a niche that no one else in the area does.

I volunteer with WRAP because I really enjoy working with a group of great people to make home accessibility available to individuals who might not be able to achieve that on their own. It is so rewarding to see the change we can make in one day to people’s lives.


Steven Arnold, Secretary

Client Representative
Wheelchair Ramp Accessibility Program

I participate on the WRAP board because of the good this organization did for my parents and for others like them. WRAP isn’t a glamorous charity – it’s a financially responsible, no frills organization that does only one thing, but it does that thing well and without fanfare. No one on the board or staff is getting rich off fund raising, and the all-volunteer element of its work force appeals to me very much. This is what helping people is all about.

I was part of the initial organizing of the Rockwell Collins Retiree Volunteers (RCRV). That was a very successful organization accomplishing many tasks for the community. But it was realized that an activity might be much more effective if it focused on a single task. Wheelchair ramps was selected and the separate WRAP organization was formed with that single focus. The thought was correct, WRAP has had a significant impact on the community. On the other side RCRV with their many tasks approach has become less successful.

Being active in RCRV I naturally was involved with the construction activities of WRAP. When I was younger I helped build many ramps. As I have grown older my active build activities has been significantly reduced.

During my active years with Collins Radio and Rockwell Collins I was involved with several internal organizations and learned to understand how organizations could function better. After retirement I became involved with several non-profit boards and learned how to accommodate my industrial experiences to those organizations. So when I was asked to join the WRAP Board it was natural fit. I have certainly enjoyed those years helping WRAP be so successful.

I participate on the board as a way of paying back to the community. The reward is when you are on a build and see the difference it makes to the recipient in giving them mobility and improve their quality of life. The small commitment we make makes a huge difference to the more recipients we can help.

The reason I volunteer with WRAP is very personal.  My dad had polio as a young adult and never walked again. As he got older he became confined to a wheel chair.   One of his neighbors saw the need and built a ramp for him so that  he could get in and out of the house. If not for the act of kindness, his life would have been far more limited. I look at WRAP as a way I can pay it back and pay it forward for those who have a need like my dad.

I’ve seen the help WRAP has been for residents in our community and want WRAP to continue to grow and be able to help more people.

I have been involved with WRAP since I retired in 2008.  I joined the board of directors in 2010.  WRAP is more than a charity organization.  The work of these volunteers frees people from the confinement of their homes while making it possible for them to remain in their homes in spite of their reduced mobility.  The action of these volunteers is energizing.  They channel their energy and God given talent to make lives in our community better.  I am proud to be part of this organization

I like being on the board and being a part of something bigger than just me. I get to be behind the scenes, so to speak, on its important work, and I feel very fortunate to be included.

I celebrate how WRAP provides freedom for individuals to come and go safely from their homes. Each project is life-changing for individuals and families. WRAP’s positive impact on our community and the dedicated volunteer efforts inspire me!

Ramp referrals are being accepted, but there is likely to be a serious slowdown in the building schedule due to the coronavirus.
