More Info

WE ARE CURRENTLY WORKING WITH THE TRIBBLE FAMILY IN WYANDANCH, NEW YORK. THE TRIBBLE FAMILY CONSISTS OF TWO BROTHERS (JOHN & BRUCE) AND A SISTER WHO LIVES OUT OF STATE. JOHN AND BRUCE LIVE IN THE FAMILY HOME THEY SHARED WITH THEIR DECEASED PARENTS & SISTER. BRUCE, THE ELDEST CHILD HAS CEREBRAL PALSY CAUSED BY  A CHILDHOOD MEDICAL EMERGENCY AND IS CONFINED TO A WHEELCHAIR AFTER SUSTAIINING A BRAIN INJURY FROM A CATASTROPHIC FALL.

 AFTER THE DEATHS OF THE TRIBBLE PARENTS (MOTHER PASSED IN 1988 & FATHER IN 2016), JOHN FOUND IT INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO DO THE UPKEEP AND NECESSARY RENOVATIONS TO THEIR HOME. JOHN IS BRUCE'S PRIMARY CAREGIVER AND REACHED OUT TO US TO MAKE THEIR FAMILY HOME SAFE, COMFORTABLE & FUNCTIONAL FOR BRUCE AND HIMSELF. THE HOME IS  NOT SET UP TO BE  HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE WHICH MAKES DAY TO DAY ACTIVITIES FOR THE BROTHERS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT.  THEIR HEATING SYSTEM IS NO LONGER WORKING & THEIR OVERALL LIVING CONDITIONS ARE LESS THAN DESIRABLE.

WE WILL BE RENOVATING THE ENTIRE HOUSE FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP & FROM THE INTERIOR TO THE EXTERIOR NO DETAIL WILL BE LEFT OUT!  THIS PROJECT IS BOTH CHALLENGING AND ENLIGHTENING FOR ALL INVOLVED AS WE WILL BE ABLE TO TELL THE TRIBBLE FAMILY'S STORY ALONG WITH OUR OWN.

WE HAVE LISTED THE SUPPLIES THAT WE ARE IN NEED OF FOR THE PROJECT. BY DONATING, YOU CAN BE A PART OF HELPING TO MAKE THE TRIBBLE FAMILY'S HOME SAFE, COMFORTABLE & LIVABLE. WE WILL BE SURE TO THANK OUR DONORS ON OUR SOCIAL MEDIA FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU DONATE FUNDS FOR A DOOR WE WILL BE SURE TO MENTION YOU DURING THE INSTALLATION! BECOME PART OF THE FAMILY BY DONATING!
