Thornton resident Petra A. was paralyzed from the neck down in a motorcycle accident. In order for Petra to return home, she needed an accessible bathroom. Thanks to the Project Captain, Accessible Systems, and additional financial support from the Sanger Foundation and the National Fair Housing Alliance, the HBF was able to complete this bathroom remodel. The estimated retail value of this remodel is $11,000.
A note of gratitude:
Her new bathroom is really nice! Petra was thrilled to be able to take a [proper] shower for the first time in almost 6 months.The work that you, Home Builders Foundation and Accessible Systems has done is truly amazing, and our family can not thank you enough! I (we) are so thankful to have organizations like yours; that help people with life-changing-events such as what happened to Petra. You have helped in such a way that words cannot begin to describe – thank you!!! –Regards, Tom Apps (brother of recipient, Petra Apps)
