David Rodriguez of Lindenhurst is 22 years old and is a courageous contender. Although, he suffers from loss of mobility and feeling in his extremities, he works hard at physical therapy three times a week and is heroically determined. As a result of an accident two years ago, he needs assistance getting up out of bed and with many daily tasks. 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. With the help of these life changing home modifications, David will be able to live with greater freedom and participate more fully in family life. He and his girlfriend are looking forward to some privacy and more independence.
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.

Does your house have barriers like hazardous steps at the front entry, narrow doors, tight hallways and small dangerous bathrooms?
Do you need to install a ramp or remodel your bathroom or kitchen to make your home accessible and safe?
If you answered yes to these questions, HomeFreeHome may be able to help. We are a group of volunteer architects who design barrier-free home renovations that allow people to live with greater safety, dignity and freedom. We connect people living with disabilities to local volunteer architects to create designs for small scale construction projects such as: ramps, accessible bathrooms and kitchens.
