We are so grateful to the Christopher Reeve Foundation which helped support the care provided in our clinic for the neurologically impaired. Having a disability in such a poor nation is extremely difficult and the additional cost for medical care puts a tremendous hardship on individuals and families.

Home Modification for Veterans by Veterans
B4V realizes that veterans with disabilities are especially in need. Providing a business opportunity that they can start from home is so important. But equally important is the ability to access the communities in which they live. Home modification that is specific to their specific needs is critically important to the success of the veteran transitioning back to civilian living. Community Rehab Project provides consultant services to B4V on concepts of successful home modification for specific disabilities. Our Physical and Occupational Therapists work with veterans with disabilities to learn about options and determine which modifications will be most helpful for their success. Then, we work with veterans construction companies to implement the home modification recommendations. Learn more about Business4Vets here.
