Fox Cities, Nov.10, 2010:
Appleton Resident with Special
Needs Celebrates New
Wheelchair-Friendly Home for
\the Holidays: Duplex home built
through Appleton Housing
Authority Partnership with
Appleton resident Sharon Brockman
is already sure the upcoming holiday
season will be filled with joy--even
before it arrives--thanks to a
continuing partnership between the
Appleton Housing Authority (AHA) and
the Appleton Area School District (AASD), which offers the unique opportunity for students from all three area high schools to build affordable homes for Appleton families in need of affordable residences.
For Brockman, a bubbly career woman, the successful partnership means a new handicapped-accessible home that's easy to get around in after years of living in apartments with doorways that were tough to navigate her wheelchair through.
Brockman recently moved into her new home, one of two new duplex-style homes at 1509 and 1511 Cass St. in Appleton, which were completed during the 2009-2010 school year by students from Appleton East, West and North High Schools under the direction and supervision of Gary Vanness, AASD program coordinator and instructor.
"I was very excited to be moving into my new home!" Brockman said. "I was looking for a long time and there was nothing affordable for me like this in the area. I love the doorways and the attached garage, which protects me from wet weather. I also love that students helped build this home. It's a great learning experience for them," she said.
