Ramp provided by Next Day Access Kansas City

Next Day Access Kansas City was honored to donate a ramp installation at the Night to Stand event for NextStep Kansas City. NextStep Kansas City is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing Activity-Based Therapy for individuals living with paralysis. Located in Overland Park, NextStep Kansas City is the sole facility of its kind in the area, committed to being a cutting-edge paralysis recovery center. “Our mission at NextStep is to offer accessible and effective interventions, along with other resources, to promote recovery, health, and wellness among our clients,” said Katie Johnson, an employee at NextStep. Since insurance does not cover their program, they heavily rely on community support to ensure that those living with paralysis have access to effective recovery programs. There are a few crucial components that bring this to life: managing recovery costs, continually enhancing and maintaining training equipment, and financially assisting clients. Since fundraisers are critical for NextStep’s various events, especially Night to Stand, Next Day Access Kansas City seized the opportunity to donate a wheelchair ramp.

Night to Stand is an annual charity dinner and auction organized to support year-long opportunities for their clients. “This year, our focus is on shattering barriers, celebrating the progress made by our clients, and to ignite the spark for the transformative work that lies ahead,” Katie continued. “The interventions we offer are more than just programs; they are lifelines that offer independence, strength, and the realization of untapped potential for individuals facing paralysis.” The theme of the event, breakthrough, aligned well with the work that Next Day Access does, and it was a natural fit for Kansas City to participate.

“After searching Google and contacting numerous rental options locally, I quickly realized the scarcity of short-term ramp rentals throughout Kansas City. I eventually discovered Next Day Access and was surprised to learn about their widespread presence across the country, along with their effortless service in my area,” said Chris Smith, the Executive Director of NextStep Kansas City. “Next Day Access provided the precise ramp solution I needed for my fundraiser and collaborated with the stage provider to secure the ramp to the stage effectively. The entire process was seamless.”

RALEIGH/DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, May 13, 2024 – Next Day Access is proud to announce the opening of the Next Day Access Raleigh/Durham, NC franchise location.

Next Day Access is expanding to two locations in North Carolina. Rob Williams and Jason Williamson are the owners of Next Day Access Raleigh/Durham, NC, serving the Triangle area.

Rob began his career in general contracting, which he has done for 32 years, and he has worked in real estate for 21 years. His understanding of the accessibility world grew as he began modifying his father’s home. While he was living independently, Rob’s father relied heavily on the accessibility devices Rob installed, such as grab bars and wheelchair ramps. Doing this fulfilling work helped Rob realize that this was a business in which he wanted to invest, and he knew who he wanted to partner with to begin this journey.

Jason Williamson is a Gulf War veteran, and his work in real estate spans over 25 years, and he owns and operates the nonprofit Williamson Resource Foundation, which partners with local VA chapters to educate the public on financial literacy and helps unhoused individuals. As a disabled veteran himself, Jason empathizes with those who were injured in action, so it made perfect sense for him to partner with Rob in opening a Next Day Access franchise location. They are joined by Jason Williamson II, their technician, Brook Williams, Rob’s wife, and other employees.

Next Day Access Raleigh/Durham, NC will serve the Triangle area of North Carolina. They specialize in wheelchair ramps, stairlifts, grab bars, porch lifts, and more. To learn more about Next Day Access Raleigh/Durham, NC, visit their website: https://www.nextdayaccess.com/raleigh-durham-nc/

Next Day Access is continuing to expand with its fourth location opening in 2024 in Tucson, Arizona. Dominic D’Arpino, along with Next Day Access veterans April Springer, Chris Bakalars, and Carl Loge, are looking forward to serving the southern Arizona community beginning April 1st.

After working for manufacturers who provide products to Next Day Access, Dominic’s interest in Next Day Access piqued. He found he was just as passionate about providing solutions to clients as the teams he worked with, and as the work continued, Dominic saw an opportunity to make a strong impact. “I am really excited about being more involved as a local provider that can have a direct impact on the community I live in,” says Dominic.

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 25, 2024 – Next Day Access is proud to announce the opening of the Next Day Access Northeast Florida franchise location.

Next Day Access is expanding to three Florida locations with northeast Florida joining the mix. Drew and Cathy Jolly are the owners of this new location, serving Jacksonville, Gainesville, Daytona Beach, and surrounding areas.

After getting out of the US Coast Guard, Cathy and Drew met and fell in love, getting married in 1997. The first seventeen years of their marriage, they lived in the Tallahassee area while raising their family but moved to Jacksonville, FL for Drew’s career in Information Technology. Five years later, the Jolly family wound up in a difficult situation.

“In 2019,” Drew recounts, “my father was diagnosed with leukemia and his health quickly turned for the worse.” The Jolly’s were able to move his father in, where they were blessed to have him spend the last year together. “We had no idea what to do or expect; we had never prepared for anything like this,” Drew says. A military man himself, he got connected with the Jacksonville VA, which he calls a godsend for how they aided him in organizing treatment for his father. One thing the Jolly’s noticed during this experience is that there are many unfortunate decisions that all care givers must make, and the VA helped them navigate those decisions with minimal stress.

With their new perspective on life, they decided that now is the time to make a positive impact on the world, and they believe Next Day Access will help them make their dream a reality. “We will provide accessibility solutions to help our neighbors stay in their homes as long as possible, which will improve their quality of life,” Drew states. “I have a passion for helping people.” The Jolly’s are looking forward to helping their northeast Florida neighbors for many years to come.

Next Day Access Northeast Florida will focus on providing accessibility and mobility solutions to individuals of all ages across the area. They provide a range of custom accessibility & mobility solutions for residences and businesses such as wheelchair ramps, stair lifts, grab bars, vertical platform lifts, pool lifts, and in-home elevators.

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, January 29, 2024 – The Colorado Springs Franchise of Next Day Access partnered with Food to Power to create both a temporary and a permanent solution to enhance accessibility.

The Mission of Food to Power

Food to Power, formerly known as Colorado Springs Food Rescue, focuses on not only reducing food waste, but also cultivating a “healthy, equitable food system.” Their mission goes beyond what most food banks do; they provide their community with resources to begin producing their own food. When their team invested in Hillside Hub, a whopping 3.5-acre hub of urban farming, fresh grocery distribution, and more, they quickly saw that food inequality was not the only need to be met.

Finding A Solution

As members of their community began showing up, they realized that a wheelchair ramp was crucial to their mission. “After making several phone calls, we very quickly came to the realization that, okay, Next Day Access will work,” said Slade Custer, Development Director of Food to Power. Within the short time frame, Next Day Access Colorado Springs created a makeshift ramp using rubber mats, allowing more members of the community access to the resources they offer. Slade continued, saying, “That was the kickoff of the partnership.”

Not only was that the kickoff of the partnership, but also the relationship between Next Day Access and Food to Power. Our technicians used their knowledge and passion about finding the right solution to educate Food to Power on the intricacies of creating a wheelchair ramp. Custer recalled learning about the inches to feet ratio, expressing how he appreciated the finer details of accessibility.

“Based off how good of an experience it was working with you [Next Day Access Colorado Springs] all the first time, it kind of opened the door for future conversations for a wheelchair ramp, and to say the least, it was an incredible experience.”

– Slade Custer

Since the Hillside Hub was built on land that was previously excavated, their wheelchair ramp required additional planning to ensure its success. “Despite it not being a copy and paste wheelchair ramp going in, you all were still very eager to work with us,” said Custer. Not only did we build a ramp, but we also built a relationship based on loyalty and understanding. “I think there’s a certain sense about Next Day Access where the personability and the customer service really played a big role…The entire time working with you all was very relational.”

A Word from Next Day Access Colorado Springs

“We are thrilled to partner with a local organization like Food to Power, said David Beiner, CEO of Next Day Access Colorado Springs. “Being able to respond to this temporary and permanent accessibility need and knowing that anyone will be able to access this space is exciting.” Now that Food to Power and Next Day Access have worked together once, we feel confident that we will work together again.
