A Hand Up for Veterans
Helping those who have served live a safer and more independent life
For many veterans, their years of service and related injuries or illness bring disabilites that make it difficult to maintain their independence. Many veterans with disabilities struggle to make ADA modifiations to their homes, which would allow them to be more independent in a safer environment. The VA has limits on what modifications it provides, and it often takes years to be approved for the work. Meanwhile, these proud veterans often suffer in silence, not wanting to be a burden to others.
Providing disabled veterans with a greater amount of independence will allow them to better care for themselves and to pursue educational and employment opportunities. This can change the life of a veteran and allow them to participate more fully in their community.
NOLAH seeks to assist those who have served us, by providing ADA modifications or minor home repairs that allow them to live in their homes longer, with greater safety and independence. Currently, NOLAH is working with Dennis Fetko, a decorated veteran and animal behavior specialist, to allow him a simple wish: to be able to prepare lunch in his own kitchen.
