Although he was born tiny, little Clayton B. has a wide smile and a heart so big it brought together a community.

Born with Cerebral Palsy and weighing a wee 1.5 lbs, doctors told Clayton's parents "not to expect much," but what they received was more than they ever dreamed.

"He's my special buddy, he's really an amazing kid," said dad, Nicholas. "He's such a happy boy, loves going outside, I can't imagine life without him."

But as the little boy grew, his size made it difficult for mom and dad to navigate the steps in their century-old home. It made it difficult to get Clayton to school or the therapy he needed.

After looking for a solution for almost two years, the family received a call from People Working Cooperatively. Then the dream of a ramp became a reality.

"He loves going up the ramp," said dad, "he's just a little scared of going down. But now he can't wait to go outside to get on the school bus. It's opened a whole new world for him. We are so grateful for People Working Cooperatively."

The Mariam G. Knoll Charitable Foundation made it possible for People Working Cooperatively to install the accessible exterior ramp, along with generous donors like you.
