In 2015 The MNAES had the opportunity to make dreams come true for one family and the staff and members of a group home by providing support through our community outreach committee. Army SPC Marco Solt is a Brooklyn Center native whose vehicle encountered an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) on his first deployment in Afghanistan. Marco lost both of his legs in the explosion and now uses prosthetics and his wheelchair to get around. MNAES provided LP siding and all the installation labor through PCS Residential for the house along with roofing material and installation labor through All Star Construction. Marco’s home was equipped with over 40 special adaptations including widened doorways, lowered countertops, roll-under cook tops and sinks designed to ensure full wheelchair accessibility and provided to him mortgage free during a key ceremony in November.
