They offer free/low cost safety and accessibility modifications to homes for families who have children with disabilities.

Description of Services

Logan’s Heart and Smiles is a 100% volunteer run non-profit organization dedicated to improving homes and inspiring hope to families with children with special needs across southern Wisconsin. When families do not have the substantial resources required to make necessary safety and accessibility modifications to their homes, they often have nowhere to turn for help.
It is our mission and honor to help families in need by providing free labor and materials to help ease the burden these families face.
Through the generous support of sponsors, donors and volunteers who give their time, resources, and skill, we are able to provide families with safer, accessible environments to support the needs of their children. Our primary source of funding each year is our Annual Fundraiser.  We use the proceeds from this event and all donations throughout the year to purchase the tools and materials necessary to construct wheelchair ramps, safety fences, enlarged doorways, hand rails, bathroom modifications, and other custom home improvements.

Description of Services


Let's make this clear at the very start: the only “silent” hair clippers you're ever going to find is a pair of scissors. Electric hair clippers are going to make noise; They're powered by a motor, and while engineers can do amazing things to damp the noise a motor creates, they can't completely eliminate it. Clippers do their work when two pieces of metal contact each other at high speed, and if that speed is lowered to a great degree in order to reduce noise, the clippers won't cut hair.
