In 2009, The DOF and United Way partnered to assist families who need renovations to make their homes accessible.
“Mary Jane” was living in a nursing home because her home was not accessible. She was unable to use the steps into her home, the doorways were too narrow, and the bathroom was not accessible. The DOF United Way partnership provided the necessary funds to cover the cost of the renovations. “Mary Jane” has moved back and is able to enjoy her home and able to enjoy her family.
