Mr. Warren has lived in his home for 56 years. He is a WWII Army veteran. He served across Europe for two and a half years. At the end of the war, he was stationed in occupied Germany. He is proud to tell stories of his service and even once delivered a letter to Dwight Eisenhower, himself. Mr. Warren was born and raised in Tulsa and says he is proud to call it his home. He had a stroke two years ago. His son also lives in his home and is also recovering from a stroke as well. Mr. Warren welcomes visitors into his home with a smile, where his Army memorabilia is prominently on display. While the volunteers were working on his home, Mr. Warren said, "This is amazing. These volunteers do a better job than any paid worker could."

Mr. Ronald suffered a stroke nearly a year ago that has left him wheelchair bound. He lives with his wife, Ms. Gwendolyn. Before they found Rebuilding Together Tulsa, Ms. Gwendolyn had been using a portable ramp to get Mr. Ronald in and out of the home for church and doctor's appointments. However, they could not use it if there was any rain or inclement weather. It was a large strain on Ms. Gwendolyn to assemble and dissemble the ramp any time Mr. Ronald needed to get out of the home. They recently received a ramp from Rebuilding Together Tulsa as a part of a Safe at Home service day. Mr. Ronald was thrilled that the strain would be taken off of his wife. He couldn't wait to be able to enter and exit the home without extra constraints. "I can't wait to be able to go sit out in the sunshine," said Mr. Ronald. "I usually can't get past the porch. I am so thankful for what you all are doing for me and my wife."
