The Home

The home on Oakwood Drive is our first fully accessible build. The three-bedroom, single-family home features barrier-free entrances, wider doorways, and a stand-up shower.

“It is the perfect home for this multigenerational family. It will give Tracy peace of mind and it will allow Carol-Anne greater freedom of mobility” states Katie Blunt, Executive Director.
