Paving The Way For Accessibility

Wonderland’s History With The HBF
Wonderland Homes is proud to be a sponsor of the Home Builders Foundation (HBF) for over 10 years. Through our 10+ year partnership with the HBF, we have helped change numerous lives around Colorado. From projects large to small, remodeling a bathroom to painting an accessibility ramp, these contributions to our community not only make a difference in the recipients’ lives, but also in ours. Giving back to our community members in need is an integral part of our business at Wonderland Homes. That is why the HBF has been one of our charities of choice for so many years.
Why We Work With The HBF
“We continue to be proud supporters of the Home Builders Foundation because of the important work they do for our community, and the opportunity to give back through our talents as home builders. We have grown to know Jamille and her family over the past few years and are thrilled to complete the final phase of her home modification, so she can continue to grow and thrive and become an independent young girl.” – Kolby O’Herron, Senior Vice President at Wonderland Homes and Home Builders Foundation Board Member
Our Most Memorable Project
One of our most memorable projects was for Jamille Hernandez, a 9-year-old who was paralyzed when a drunk driver hit her family’s car that she was riding in. We first built Jamille a ramp in the front of her home in 2017. Our team was so inspired by Jamille’s courage and resilience and we wanted to help more. In 2018, we constructed a wheelchair accessible bathroom and last year we built a ramp in her backyard so she can enjoy outside time with her family in their backyard.
What Independence And Elevating Lives Means To Wonderland
When you ask us what “Building Independence and Elevating Lives” means to us, it means we are working with our team to help someone who was affected by an unfathomable circumstance; to help rebuild the independence they lost and lift their spirits by expanding their accessibility to their home and to the outside.
Why Wonderland Gets Involved
All of us here at Wonderland continue to get involved with the HBF’s mission to provide accessibility to a person’s everyday life. The big reveal when a project is completed never fails to bring everyone to tears of joy and satisfaction as we watch the recipient’s like Jamille experience a new level of independence for the first time. This is what drives our team to continue to volunteer with this amazing organization.
