Accessible Homes

Our mission is to help families with disabled children make their homes more accessible under the guidance of architects, builders, craftspeople and volunteers.

HISTORY

Along with growing up with a sister, Jamie, with Cerebral Palsy, Ed Slattery now has a permanently disabled 17 year old son after a horrific accident that changed he and his family’s lives forever.  On August 16, 2010, a truck driver fell asleep behind the wheel, killing his wife, Susan Slattery, injuring one son and disabling the youngest, Matthew. Matthew defied expectations in his recovery from traumatic brain injury with the help of rehabilitation, and is now wheel chair bound. Outside of therapy, Ed tries to keep Matthew involved in as many every day activities as he can, “My attitude is that Matthew can do whatever we imagine him doing,” Ed says.

 

However, Ed has grown up watching his sister and the every day challenges that face the disabled, now including his son Matthew. He sees the substantial gap between the need for and the supply of accessible environments and daily living products and how nothing has been done to advance them over the last 30 years, which is what motivated him to start FANN.
