Help Paraplegic Toms River Man Rebuild his Home After Sandy
Eric Katz, a 30-year-old paraplegic, Toms River, NJ native, who has devoted his life to building and creating artificial limbs for amputees, lost his home and everything he owned during Hurricane Sandy.
Eric was 2-weeks away from finishing his self-built and customized home that took him 4 years to build when Sandy entered his home and nearly destroyed everything.
With FEMA’s newly proposed Flood Zone Maps, people with disabilities were not accounted for (ie. wheelchair ramps and accessibility). Since none of the damages were covered by insurance, Eric will be unable to afford the cost to rebuild and raise his home to the new elevations required.
Eric has dedicated his life to helping others and now it is our time to help him.
