J. Bowers Construction Helps Transform A Family’s Life
Empowered by their own obstacles, Andre and Jasmine Anderson have never let anything slow them down. Diving headlong into their work, Andre and Jasmine have dedicated their time to supporting and counseling the disabled by connecting them with resources to help them live and lead more independent lives. Despite the fact that Andre is blind and Jasmine is legally blind, the couple has pushed forward full steam to make Cleveland a more user-friendly environment.
Despite having lost their sight after their sons, Jaison and Jahzion were born, Andre and Jasmine have rallied back and have embraced their reality. In spite of the inspiration they gave to their surrounding communities, their home was falling apart. Due to their growing needs, the home became hazardous and complicated for them to live there any longer.
The Anderson family has given so much to those who face numerous challenges every day, without asking for anything in return.
However, on September 29, that all changed when Ty Pennington, designers Michel Moloney, Tracy Hutson, and Xzibit took seven days to deliver a “Smart House” incorporating the latest home technologies for the disabled. Local builders Marous Brothers Construction, J. Bowers Construction and community volunteers rebuilt the structure and gave them the key to live above and beyond their wildest dreams.
The home includes high-tech equipment and wide-open spaces, scanners that read food labels and speaks out loud, and reading machines to help the family read books. Jasmine has found comfort in a newly made product that helps her put on makeup and jewelry. The secure home also includes voice activation so the family knows who is at the door.
J. Bowers Construction, of Akron, Ohio, assisted by providing drying and cleaning services, including dehumidification and round-the-clock monitoring and labor, to expedite the drying of the drywall, primer, and paint in the interior and exterior of the home. The project was completed the week of September 29 in Maple Heights, OH.
