Syndi’s Mom, Cathy Jerome, writes to HFH: “The open space of the kitchen/living room has made the most significant difference because now she can ambulate in her gait trainer, use her stander and wheelchair while also being closely monitored.”
More about the Home for Sydni Project
David Rodriguez of Lindenhurst is 22 years old and is a courageous contender. David lives with his family of 6, but he is often excluded from family activities, like eating dinner with the others, because his power chair cannot get through the narrow doorways of their small house. Volunteer Architect Michael Morbillo has designed an addition that will include an accessible ramp into the house, an overhead lift and a bedroom with space enough for his vital exercise routine.
Please help us build this new home for David. Your donation, of any size, is important and much needed. Since HomeFreeHome is an all-volunteer organization, your donation to will go directly to help David and his family.
HomeFreeHome is a group of volunteer architects who design barrier-free home renovations. Our projects allow people to live with greater safety, dignity and freedom.
HomeFreeHome was created to respond to the growing need for accessible, safe home design for ALL. Over 90% of homes in the United States have many barriers and are dangerous. In fact, every year millions are injured from falls in their own bathrooms. Universal Design enhances the quality of life, regardless of age, or ability.
LOCAL ARCHITECTS - We connect people living with mobility limitations to local volunteer architects to create designs for small scale construction projects such as: ramps, accessible bathrooms and kitchens. Take a look at our wonderful projects.
UNIVERSAL DESIGN EDUCATION - Our workshops go beyond basic ADA standards and focus on applying the principals of Universal Design in private homes. The presentation includes examples of projects such as; no-step entries, accessible kitchens and safe bathrooms, as well as adding to home’s value.
Unfortunately due to limited funding, we are no longer accepting new applications.
