Home With Special Needs
This home is one of 54 owned by Bello Machre, a non-profit organization that houses developmentally disabled adults. They had a vision of creating a "model home" that would house two residents in wheel chairs, two able-bodied residents, and a resident care taker with her family. The result was a large, open addition with a hidden ramp, and a front porch for lounging. The entire house is fully handicapped accessible, including the kitchen. The bathroom is equipped with a roll-in shower; Hoyer lifts from the bedrooms and a $20,000 therapeutic bathtub. The residents feel blessed to call this house their home.
