Paralyzed victim of intimidation shooting near goal of new home

Tara Hall, the East Side woman left paralyzed from the waist down in what authorities believe was a 2012 witness-intimidation shooting, is several hundred dollars away from no longer being homeless.

Hall says she has found a new wheelchair accessible apartment on Grant Street through, a property management company and real estate broker, but needs to come up with a cash security deposit of $575. Her federal Section Eight monthly housing allowance and Supplemental Security Income from Social Security, she said, will cover the monthly rent, which is also $575, but she is short on the deposit.

“I need a donation and I’m hoping someone will help me please before the apartment gets taken,” said Hall, who is currently staying at Terrace View, a long-term health care facility at Erie County Medical Center’s campus.

She was transferred from ECMC into Terrace View following medical treatment for wounds, which have been a persistent problem because she is wheelchair bound.

Hall lost her other apartment because of a conflict involving a relative who had been staying there from time to time. She said that no else will be living with her at her new location. Anyone who wants to make a donation can contact her at 551-7696 or send funds to Tara Hall, room 23, Terrace View, Canalside, 462 Grider St., Buffalo, N.Y., 14215.
