As Samantha’s House enters its 9th year of improving the living conditions for Indiana residents suffering from life-altering disabilities, it’s important we continue challenging the foundation’s original mission, strengthen our reach, and further enable those in need.
In that spirit, I want to announce the possibility of an incredibly exciting addition to the Samantha’s House Foundation which will take the form of fully-customized vehicles that are wheelchair accessible and operational.
I remain inspired by the boundless energy and commitment our volunteers and community leaders put forth whenever called upon. And there is no question my sentiments are shared by the individuals in Indiana whose lives have been forever improved by your kindness.
On the verge of this latest announcement, I also thought it appropriate to take a moment and take a look back at our roots and past achievements:
Our community-wide effort started when little Samantha Allen became a quadriplegic. She is now confined to a wheelchair and is ventilator dependant for the rest of her life. She requires 24-hour medical care and a home that meets her significant medical and daily living needs.
With help from our community the Samantha House Foundation built the Allen family a new customized home which now meets Samantha’s extensive medical needs.
As always, I wish to close by extending my unqualified gratitude to each volunteer, board member, and professional organization for their contributions, selflessness, and ongoing dedication to Samantha’s House.
