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.

PT Cos-C Physical Therapist
Mercy 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 Mercy Home Care, I continually recommend WRAP when a situation warrants it. They fill a niche that no one else in the area does.

Community Volunteer
Wheelchair Ramp Accessibility Program

I volunteer with WRAP because I love seeing the smile on clients’ faces when they see their finished ramp for the first time. Being able to give them safe access to and from their homes is so rewarding, and they are so excited and grateful. We really are changing someone’s life in a day and are helping them stay in their homes. My mother uses a wheelchair, so I know how important WRAP’s mission is. The other volunteers are wonderful and welcoming, and I cannot think of a better way to give back to the community.

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.

UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Hospital

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.

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 got to know WRAP and its wonderful volunteers through my position at Mount Mercy University. Mount Mercy loves volunteering with WRAP on build sites and partnering in the classroom. After many service events the WRAP mission just got into my blood!

Rick Segar, Risk Assessment & Control

Senior VP & Senior Trust Officer
Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust

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.

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!
