Freedom to Live

4-LiPHE wants to make living with a disability exactly that – “living” with a disability, not just surviving with one.  Imagine a world where Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness is available for Everyone. 4-LiPHE.

Pursuing Dreams

Living with a disability means more than just surviving.  Living means being a part of society in a meaningful manner, and that starts with the ability to participate.  4-LiPHE wants to create opportunities for individuals with disabilities to pursue their Dreams for Life.

Experiencing Life

Did you know that 12% of US households has someone with a disability living there?  Roughly 1 in 8.  So why don’t we see that many disabled people in our day to day lives?  Because when you are disabled, it’s just not that easy to get out and experience life.  4-LIPHE wants to change that.

What is 4-LiPHE

4-LiPHE (Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness for Everyone) focuses on providing programs, information and education regarding individuals with disabilities with the goal of creating a world in which people with disabilities can have the resources and support needed to be able to fully pursue their dreams for life as ably as those without disabilities. 4-LiPHE is registered with the IRS and incorporated in the state of Virginia, and is currently pending its Tax Exemption status.

​Our Mission

4-LiPHE’s mission is to provide a resource center to benefit the disabled community through raising awareness and generating funds for people with or living with disabilities by focusing on education and alleviating the high costs of housing including rents, mortgages and specialized housing modifications.

Current Project

4VETS 4LIFE is dedicated to providing vital assistance and support to American wounded veterans in order to help them overcome their injuries and re-establish themselves as successful productive members of society. 4VETS 4LIFE works to restore the lost dreams of our wounded Veterans whose futures have been dramatically changed through injuries sustained serving America. We work to provide the necessary resources to help these Veterans get back on path to creating the lives they deserve.

Our program lets all of us across America get to know our Veterans as individuals and to contribute to making each Veteran’s dream a reality from job training, educational certifications, and business development skills to acquiring a specialized vehicle, a companion animal for service and safety, or providing a home designed to allow universal accessibility.
