JUPITER — The Gary Sinise Foundation’s R.I.S.E. program provides specially adapted smart homes, home modifications, mobility devices, and adapted vehicles to severely wounded veterans and their families. The Foundation has a new collaboration with the Natural Stone Institute and their members. Real Stone & Granite, a member of the Natural Stone Institute is providing materials and labor at no charge for a new home being built for a wounded warrior in Jupiter.

Living in total reliance on caregivers for even the most mundane, sometimes very personal tasks is a reality for many severely wounded veterans. R.I.S.E. was established to provide these heroes and their families with the resources to overcome their new life challenges. The Gary Sinise Foundation is committed to helping our wounded heroes increase their mobility and reclaim their self-reliance.

Jose Ubilla, Founder of Real Stone & Granite is a long-time supporter of our veterans. His company has created dozens of monuments honoring veterans throughout the state. One of his latest monuments is on display at Veterans Memorial Park in Port St. Lucie and was dedicated to our Gold Star Families. “We are extremely honored to part of this project,” said Ubilla. “These veterans have made a tremendous sacrifice to protect us, now its our turn to help them and their families.”
