Home for Our Troops

In the fall of 2008, the IBEW became involved in a project called Home for Our Troops, to build an accessible home for a local soldier who had sustained serious injuries while serving overseas. Charles "Chuck" Isaakson Will found that many everyday activities were now extremely difficult or impossible to perform from his wheelchair. The Home for Our Troops program stepped in to build him a new home that would accommodate his chair and allow him to the freedom to perform many household tasks and to access his entire home with ease. The IBEW was a proud partner, donating hours of electrical installation to the project so that Chuck and his family could move into their new fully accessible home without additional financial burden.
