Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Application

Bee's Knees started this conversation

http://abc.go.com/shows/extreme-makeover-home-edition/apply

I planned to apply for this but never got around to making the video.  I wish I had, before it was too late.  From the shows I have seen, they pay your mortgage off.  I hope someone reads this and applies.

I’m an African-American, handicapped woman. Please read all of this! I've been in a wheelchair for over 29 years. I am 43 years old. (Can I ask you a question; if you, your wife or someone in your life had to go for a vacation and little fun; or finding somewhere to work. And one of you or the both of you were in wheelchairs and there no place for you to go! What would you do and where would you go?) Let me tell you more about what I'm trying to do. This place is also going green throughout the whole retreat, recycling water, recycling energy and recycling cans, paper and glass and much more. Also included in this is an outlook of the retreat as well as drawings of plans and signs, which I have. This retreat will have benefits for ALL the disabled.

Employment: This retreat will bring a lot of job opportunities for many people in different ways, if you are disabled or not disabled. I strongly encourage the disabled people to work at this retreat and others that may open.

Example: cooks, waiters, waitresses, housekeepers, therapists and so much more.

The Retreat: Wheeling Comforts bed and breakfast retreat includes; a rode Iron Gate that will be around the whole retreat, recycling Center, R-V parking lot, There's a park named “Victory Park ” one side for us and another for a Celebrity wing. It also includes a guest parking lots, vegetable garden and fruit trees. Then you have the Petty James Reeds banquet /conference/Faculty Hall. Wheeling Comforts has a pool and hot tub, men’s and women’s restrooms and “the cage”, which is the place to have weddings and parties etc. The front of the retreat is a yard. There will be various electrical outlets in the brick fence around yard and house. You have in the house, dining rooms and kitchens and all of the other places where events can be held! There is a large size house, within the house there is a living room, laundry rooms, dining room, kitchen, hall-ways; Pantry & Linen closets, bedrooms & bathrooms. The rooms are named after “stones of the earth”. On the back side of the main house are more various electrical outs and Side-walks that lead you in many directions. One of the ways goes to the day-care, laundry rooms, and staff rooms. In the Courtyard, there are ten rooms. In the middle of the ten rooms, you have the Courtyards. Then you come to the gates of the celebrity wing, and they can have the same fun, with their own privacy as well. In there is a kitchen, dining room, day care, a small park, storage, laundry rooms, the other side of the retreat, and the celebrity wing parking lot. On both sides of the retreat, on the outside gates there are a dog runs and above that a cat runs. On the outer outside wall, on the other side of the Celebrity wing is the gift shop, salon and Medical center.

Example: There will be special equipment for the disabled people so they can get in and out of the pools, bathtubs and bed; as well as having special vehicles with lifts and ramps etc for all guest and employees.

Medical and Therapy center: There is a Medical center for any type of emergency or medical needs, for all staff and customers, until the paramedics arrive. A therapy on call for your therapy needs. A psychiatrist, there on call for those needing that back up in life. You also have on the outside wall, a salon and gift shop-Medical supply, everything within this place has the A-D-A requirements.

There are many places to hold special events and parties like (1) both sides of Victory Park (2) The Cage, (3) The Petty James Reed Banquet/Conference/ hall. (4) Pool and Hot Tub Areas (5) Courtyard (6) Celebrity wing, only Celebrities here. In all of these places, you will be able to hear music from the stereo systems; we will also be able to break off or change the music in many ways and areas around the retreat as needed. So we can have many events at the same time. I would love to give us, the disabled a place of our own. A place to come and have some fun (if needed and a place to work.) We have Know comfortable place to do anything like this!!!! It will be the first. I’m also have my none-profit, Willing Comforts Centers INC. With this I’ll be able to give to the ones that feel the world has forgotten them. With the both of these will be working together, I'll be able to do a little more, also both of these have been patent. So if you can help us, we would greatly appreciate it; and can help the disabled community get back into the world and give them a little place to call their own!

Please help the disabled community with this special project-program. Help those who need jobs, those that are handicapped and want to work and those that just need a place like this to relax, and have some fun and just want to get away in life. If you will help us out on this, this year! You and I can answer the prayers of those that need help! Thank you!
