Handicap Housing for the Hackleys

$8,075 of $9,000 goal

Raised by 112 people in 30 months
The Hackleys are a special needs family in Branford, CT. The mother, Cynthia and her two sons Charlie and Loiue are all wheelchair bound.  They were victims of abuse by a home health aide who was stealing their rent money, and food stamps.  This lead to her incarceration, but unfortunately, it also lead to them being evicted from their current home.  While we are fortunate enough to have found them a great new home, it has ZERO handicap accessibility.   MN Reale Construction has graciously offered to donate 100% of the labor- widening doorways, widening hallways and creating an open bathroom that will allow them the ability to perform all the daily activities that we all take for granted.  We are raising funds to cover the building and bathroom supplies (lumber, shower fixtures, modified, shower, toilet and sink).   Our hope is to be able to start the remodel on February 1st, so the house will be ready for them to move in before their eviction on February 28th

.  Any and all help is so greatly appreciated by this amazing family in our community!

The Hackleys are all moved into their new home!!! The family arrived to see their new house around 4pm on Monday. Steve Mazzacane from Branford Seven came over to talk to the family and get their thoughts on seeing their new home for the first time. Mat Reale from MN Reale was there to greet the family and welcome them, as well. They were all thrilled at the new shower and bathroom!!! Cynthia and the boys are all getting adjusted to their new digs and figuring out where they want things to go, as they begin unpacking. We cant thank everyone enough for sharing our page, donating and offering help with the moves and all the work involved in this project! Cynthia, Charlie, and Louie are beyond grateful for your support.

Big thank you to Jessica St. John for all your help at their old apartment! Dan Colburn, we couldn't have done this without you. Thank you for the ride over there in the snowstorm to bring them a hot meal, you're our hero!

Tomorrow is MOVING DAY!!! Cynthia and the boys are anxiously waiting to see their new home! We had an amazing crew come together two weeks ago and move majority of their belongings. The family was able to spend two extra weeks in their current home while M.N. Reale finished up renovations. The few winter storms we've had altered our schedule, but we are still able to get the family in on time. We couldn't have pulled it off without the tireless effort of our volunteers. I will be adding a small photo album on my Facebook page to show all the work that has been done- but I can only upload one photo per update on this page. Thank you again to all our donors and the community for coming together and helping us get the Hackleys into a new, safe home!
