Our New Home!
Beginning with a simple conversation at a meeting of the board of directors in November 2010, and after a considerable planning, searching, selecting, construction and preparation, we have finally moved into our new home. MCIL is now located at 530 North Robert Street, St. Paul, Minnesota 55101.
With this move, we have added more than 3500 square feet of additional instructional, program and administrative space. It is quite a change for us. We are excited and look forward to serving in our new home.
Please watch the mail and your email, we will be announcing our grand opening reception soon (It will be scheduled for after the first of the year, so we don’t have to compete with the holidays.)

The Ramp Program
For almost 20 years the ramp program has had the success in providing safe, affordable modular ramps and special steps for over 5,000 homes in the metro area. The award winning ramp manual “how to build RAMPS for home accessibility” provides the basic information and planning to meet local building codes and design a ramp for single –family homes.
Many community organizations have adopted the ramp program to assist a neighbor or friend who faces architectural barriers to their home. The Vet Volunteers have taken on a number of ramps to help a fellow vet in need of ramp. With MCIL drafting the plans, approval from the local building inspector and the volunteers the ramp was completed in two days. Pictured: vets building a ramp in West St. Paul.
