On December 18, 2015, the Washington County Local Share Account Review Committee recommended, and the County Commissioners approved, a grant in the full requested amount of $400,000 for an advanced technology elevator for Transitional Paths to Independent Living (TRPIL).

This elevator will be part of the life safety area addition to the renovated YWCA building on West Maiden Street, Washington, PA. The elevator can support two wheelchairs side-by-side in normal operation, and has specialty controls to aid accessibility for people with disabilities. Its installation will enhance the access and usefulness to the entire community of the new building which will serve as TRPIL’s new office.
