Help make independence possible.
Liz has a C6 spinal cord injury and lives in Long Beach, NY. Her home was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and now, more than 5 years later, she is still not home!
After FEMA declared her wheelchair accessible house “substantially damaged”, meaning that the cost of repairs would be more than half the appraised value and demanded that she either elevate or rebuild, Liz finally found a contractor to do the work in the summer of 2016. Now her contractor has taken over $180,000 and gone bankrupt, leaving the house undone and uninhabitable.
