Adapt A Vet was formed in July of 2015, by Founders Roxann and Michael Cotugno, when they saw the un-met need for specific adaptation services to disabled Veterans. This desire has grown and extended to serve the 13 County Alamo Region.
Adapt A Vet has collaborated with community construction partners, area Veteran Service Organizations (VSO) and other Non-Profit Organizations to service Veterans’ needs and make adaptations to several Veterans’ homes since inception.
Each adaptation is personalized based on the Veteran’s needs and disabilities, utilizing elements of Universal Design and the services of designers and contractors familiar with local home design and real estate trends. Not to mention, “blending in” to the neighborhood can help foster that sense of community that we are trying to give back as well.
Highlights of some of our initial adaptations include a full home adaptation consisting of home entry and exit ramps (plus emergency exit), widened doorways, hard surface / slip free flooring, modified counter top heights, pull down shelving, roll-in shower, vanity modifications, new plumbing fixtures, energy efficient lighting, and more. All adaptations and modifications allow the Veteran and their family to experience, “What Freedom Feels Like In Their Own Home” ©
