The simple tasks of everyday life -- climbing stairs, reaching a high shelf, driving to the grocery store -- are easy to take for granted. Because they're done without a second thought, it's impossible to imagine an inability to perform them. But that's often the reality for our severely wounded heroes, where basic tasks are impossible obstacles and the enduring ambition of rehabilitation is to achieve a semblance of normalcy.
Wheelchairs & Trackchairs
R.I.S.E. was established to provide wounded heroes and their families with the necessary resources to overcome their new life challenges. Whether providing home modificiations, adapted vehicles, wheelchairs/trackchairs or constructing one-of-a-kind custom Smart Homes, the Gary Sinse Foundation is committed to helping our wounded heroes increase their mobility and reclaim their self-reliance.
Through R.I.S.E., we're proudly building Smart Homes for our nation's most severely wounded heroes.
All of our warriors encounter difficulties when they return to civilian life, but these heroes face unimaginable life changes. Help us honor their incredible service to our country with a new Smart Home, customized to ease the day-to-day challenges they now face. Features like retractable cooktops, cabinets and shelving, automated lighting, heating, air-conditioning and window treatments controlled by an iPad, as well as elevators, roll-in bathrooms, front-load washers and dryers, intercom systems and automated doors can help restore their independence in countless ways.
Building for America's Bravest
We're also building custom Smart Homes through our Building for America's Bravest partner program with Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
By the end of 2014
