Just finding someone to make a few simple repairs, let alone making alterations to make homes more accessible for those in need were far and few between. Fast forward to today, Dave is a Senior Building inspector in the Residential Section of the now Bureau of Development services. Discovering and aligning with ReFIT has allowed him to become involved in a real way providing those much needed accessibility resources to those most vulnerable he became so familiar with so many years ago.
