About Life Goes On
In 1988, Art Olvera went for a ride with a friend, and that trip changed his life forever. A tragic accident left him a quadriplegic due to a severe spinal injury. After years of personal experience in his own pursuit for independence, as well as observing the struggles of other disabled individuals, Art and his wife Mary formed Life Goes On-Home Improvement, a non profit 501(c)(3) corporation in order to help people with various disabilities improve their home environments to maximize accessibility, independence, safety, and social interaction.
Fully supported by a board, Life Goes On-Home Improvement is committed to coordinating accessibility projects from start to finish, including (1) Outreach to disabled and elderly populations, (2) Project development, including needs assessment and a professional planning process based on Universal Design concepts, and, (3) Identifying available funding options, and (4) Contractor selection and construction management.
