More About the Freedom For Ray Project
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.
