Paralyzed Veteran, Unable to Live in Home

C.J. a U.S. Army Veteran was struck by an unknown disease in 2005 that affected her spinal cord. She became paralyzed from the waist down. In 2009 her husband passed away and in February 2012 the disease returned.  She became paralyzed from the chest down.

C.J being unable to maintain her home was in need of several structural repairs. Her home was also in need of modification to accommodate her being wheelchair bound.  Her home did not allow her to complete simple tasks such as getting to the restroom or taking a shower without a great deal of assistance. Her bathroom was not ADA compliant.

In partnership with several others NW AR RC&D was able to be a part of making the necessary repairs. NW AR RC&D supplied just under $7,000.00 in material and a couple of volunteers. By combining our resources with the resources of others we were able to allow C.J to function in her own home.

Thank you for your partnership with us!
