Military Branch: United States Marine
Location: Phoenix, Arizona
Build Completion: February 2014

United States Marine Staff Sergeant Ken Champlin lost both of his legs below the knees and suffered a traumatic brain injury from an IED attack during a dismounted patrol in Al Anbar Province Iraq. Upon arriving back to his hometown of Phoenix, Arizona, Champlin quickly discovered that his living accommodations were not conducive to using prosthetics or a wheelchair.

After hearing his story, Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors purchased a home for him. They partnered with Peak One Builders & Restoration to successfully complete the necessary remodel upgrades to make his home accessible.

The renovations include an open kitchen, widened doorways, indoor and outdoor ramps, new appliances and mounted televisions, a newly built master bedroom, wheelchair accessible bathroom, an outdoor garage, and a barbecue area.

On February 13th, 2014, SSGT Ken officially received the keys to his newly remodeled home. He will now live safely and comfortably in his own home.
