Building Zack’s House

In September, 2012, South St. Paul native Zack Mohs was struck by a hit and run driver as he was crossing the street. Zack suffered multiple life threatening injuries and doctors held out little hope that he would survive.

However, doctors didn’t reckon on Zack’s zest for life or his mother Cheryl Young’s sheer determination that her son would not only survive but would someday walk again. Cheryl’s dream was to build a home that would accommodate his needs, allow him to continue to work on his recovery and someday serve as a base for his dog-training business. Cheryl and Zack’s friends held multiple fundraisers and were able to get the house partially built. When funds began to run out, Cheryl approached the BATC Foundation for help.

Partnering with Rebuilding Together Twin Cities and Barn Raisings, the BATC Foundation is helping this determined young man on his road to recovery. Builder Partner, JK Anderson, stepped up to help complete the home, and many other BATC members have donated materials and labor to the project. Zack’s house is the featured project on Barn Raisings ( now through the end of March.
