“Groundbreaking for – 1 Lt. James W. Moore’s New Accessible Home”
RICHMOND, VIRGINIA – The Disabled Veterans Committee on Housing announced today it is organizing a groundbreaking to celebrate the beginning of construction of the new accessible home for former Army 1st Lt. James W. Moore. The 11:00AM ceremony will take place at the site of the new home which will be located at 9419 Dry Creek Road, Chesterfield, Virginia 23832 . Lt. Moore, a decorated soldier who served with distinction in the Gulf War, is a 100% disabled veteran. Lt. Moore is looking forward very much to moving into his new Specially Adapted Home that has been designed to meet his medical needs.
The Disabled Veteran’s Committee on Housing assisted Lt. Moore with successfully planning all phases of the new home construction process: house design, financing, lot selection, application for and approval of VA and other grants, construction, etc. All of these steps were accomplished under the DVCH “One-Stop-Shop” new home case management approach.
For Lt. Moore and other disabled veterans having a new accessible and affordable home is a dream comes true. Unlike most Americans, our disabled veterans – who have given so much to keep America free – can not move around their homes freely, go from one room to another, and use the kitchen and bathroom. The things they once did are for so many out of reach because of the injuries they sustained serving our country. For many disabled veterans isolation and limited access in their homes ignites a sense of hopelessness and despair. Many feel forgotten, useless to themselves and their families. The DVCH has and is assisting many disabled veterans to dramatically improve the quality of life in their homes.
John S. Lewandowski, President of the Disabled Veterans Committee on Housing (DVCH) and a 100% disabled veteran, started the DVCH in 2008. Its mission is to: To assure that disabled veterans are able to obtain the
highest quality housing at affordable prices that meets theiraccessibility and mobility needs. The DVCH continues to grow with new disabled veterans learning about what the organization can do through caring, and that’s the key to the program – “CARING”.
We at the Disabled Veterans Committee on Housing are holding the groundbreaking on October 29 to honor Lt. Moore, thank him for his distinguished service to America and to celebrate the beginning of this exciting new home construction project
