Project Year: 2014
RaQuan was walking out the door of his home one morning when he was shot in an act of violence. Due to this attack, he became a quadriplegic and is primarily confined to the hospital bed in his room.
RaQuan lives in public housing and therefore obstacles to renovations have arisen. Currently, Welcome Home Angel is in talks with the Wilmington Housing Authority to remove the bureaucratic blocks in order to make a difference in RaQuan’s life.
UPDATE: After about a year of advocating for RaQuan and his family, the Wilmington Housing Authority has approved the family for a new handicap accessible unit. A volunteer design team has given his current room a makeover and will transfer the design into his new room once the family moves.
