Community Worked Together To Build Accessible Home For
April 19, 2005
PELL CITY, ALABAMA--Friday's Pell City Daily Home featured a story about how one community came together last year to build an accessible home for a 14-year-old boy and his family.
John Paul Montgomery's 3,000 square foot house is designed with him and his wheelchair in mind. It has hardwood and tile floors to make it easier to move about. It has wide doors, a shower that he can take his wheelchair into, and a kitchen counter that is at the right height for him.
"It feels better to be more independent," said John Paul, whose spine was injured during football practice in August 2003.
"I can do a lot more on my own."
