Southern Utah Home Builders Celebrate Ribbon Cutting

Press Release

October 25, 2012

The Southern Utah Home Builders Association (SUHBA) completed its 2012 Home Builders Care project – Building A Home for Lindsey. SUHBA celebrate the ribbon cutting today, for a 1,560-square-foot home equipped with handicapped accessible features for a St. George resident with special needs.

The three-month project has included the contributions of more than 140 SUHBA members and other companies who have joined efforts in building a home for Lindsey who is disabled and limited to a wheelchair.

Called by her grandfather, “Sweet Lindsey,” she is a 21-year-old art student at Dixie State College who has been unable to use her hands or legs since birth. Her Grandfather, Glen Martin has been saving for years to purchase a home with accommodations for Lindsey’s special needs. Now struggling with health issues, Martin approached SUHBA to help make his wish for Lindsey come true.

The home includes special features that will make Lindsey’s daily living a little easier. Some features include a keypad entry to enter the home, electronic cabinets in the kitchen, and countertops at a lower height.

The mission of SUHBA and the Home Builders Care Foundation is to strengthen communities in Washington County by assisting with charitable construction related services to individuals in need, enhancing the quality of life in Southern Utah. Last year, the SUHBA Home Builders Care project included an expansion and remodel of the St. George Doctors Volunteer Clinic.
