Community Effort Creates Accessible Homes
October 2, 2006
GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN--Monday's Green Bay Press-Gazette reported on how a community is coming together to build a series of barrier-free homes to help local people with physical disabilities to be more independent.
Fifty-two partners have joined forces to build the accessible homes, including a church, a construction firm, architects, the city of Green Bay, a community foundation, and dozens of donors.
"They've given me back my independence," said Debbie Ostrowski, who has muscular dystrophy and will be moving with her son into a home that will be completed in December.
