Working Together, Disabled Tennessee Man Can Remain in Home He Loves

June 21, 2019

Sam was 49-years-old when debilitating cancer struck. It forced him to be confined to a wheelchair to get around – and that included even getting in and out of his home.

His father, aware of the nonprofit, Of One Accord, in Rogersville, Tennessee, turned to the organization for help in having a handicap ramp constructed for his son who had worked hard all his life.

From there, Of One Accord organized a group of volunteers from the local Crossroads Assembly of God congregation which pitched in to build a porch ramp, making it possible for him to enter and exit his home on his own.

Thanks to the supporters of Americans Helping Americans®, we are able to provide the funding necessary to construct handicap ramps, repair roofs and rotting floors enabling the elderly and disabled residents such as Sam to remain in the homes they love for as long as they desire.
