Compo Builders, Inc. Is Honored To Build Handicapped-Accessible Home For Local Veteran And His Family

NOVI, MI, 2014 – David and Christopher Compo, owners of Compo Builders, Inc. of Novi, Michigan are spearheading a project to build a new home in Redford for Leonard Addison and his family. Mr. Addison is a military veteran who was severely injured in 2000 after falling from a Black Hawk helicopter.

As an industry peer, Compo Builders, Inc., in conjunction with The Pelican Foundation are seeking your support in creating this barrier-free home. From time and services to building materials and appliances, electrical work to cabinetry, landscaping and more, we are seeking donations of time, labor, materials and money in order to give the Addison’s a place they can finally call home.

During an assault training mission in 2000, Leonard Addison was thrown from a helicopter, suffering debilitating injuries including inflammation of the sciatic nerve, reconstructive knee surgery, a hypertensive vascular condition, degenerative arthritis of the spine resulting in severe mobility issues. He now suffers from a major depressive disorder as well, but has earned a Bachelors degree in criminal justice (2009) to aid in supporting his family. Leonard and his wife Nicole have three children, sons Nicholas (9) and Lathan (8) and daughter Lola (2). Lola suffers from cerebral palsy and spastic quadriplegia, requiring a wheelchair to move around. Son Lathan also has asthma. Together, let us help this family to thrive and prosper as they are truly deserving of our help.

The proposed home, besides being barrier-free, also needs hardwood floors for Lola to crawl as well as use her wheelchair on. Wide doorways are necessary, as well as main floor bedrooms and bathrooms with barrier-free showers, and a first floor laundry room. Special railings, ramps and a stair lift will be required throughout the home as well as many other ADA compliant facilities.

Although this is a vast undertaking, your participation is essential to helping the Addison family. If you wish to participate, please contact me directly. Any contribution you can make, large or small, is greatly appreciated.
