Changing Lives-Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota Residents

Written By: Safe Step Tub

August 25, 2016

It began with a Facebook post, a long shot request from Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota Designated Coordinator Becky Narveson to Minneapolis-based Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. of Minnesota. In her request, Ms. Narveson told the story of four incredible ladies, all with intellectual disabilities, who have lived together for more than 30 years. The women are cared for 24 hours a day, but their needs have become more challenging recently.

Their one outstanding need: a safe way to take a bath. The women currently have a cold-tiled step-in shower that not only doesn’t fit their needs, it’s not safe. The answer: a hydrotherapeutic walk-in tub. Yet, with a limited budget the solution seemed out of reach until the Facebook post reached the desk of company president Craig Dauffenbach and his wife, Safe Step COO Stephanie Dauffenbach.

“We were moved by this story and we are in the business of changing lives every day,” said Craig Dauffenbach. “We see a need and we are pleased to help these precious members of our community with a life-changing gift. It was our pleasure to award them with a free walk-in tub through this program of giving, Safe Step Cares.”
