  • Disability Accommodation Cost Guides

    Changing, remodeling or making additions to your home to accommodate people with disabilities can be done in a variety of different ways. If you are building a new home, you can ensure that it be single-level without door jambs to impede a wheelchair. If you are remodeling aspects of an existing home, you may need to do reconstruction or creative planning to make the changes. Disability accommodations can range in cost depending on the complexity of the changes. If you need to accommodate a wheelchair then you may choose to add ramps, stair lifts or an elevator.
  • Disabled American Veterans

    DAV is the most long-lasting veterans advocacy and assistance group in this country. We’ve watched this country change and grow, and we’ve grown along with it.

We invite everyone, veterans and civilian, men and women, young and old, to join us as we stand up for those veterans who risked it all when they stood up for us, our country, and our ideals.
