LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A young Lexington girl who was paralyzed in a drive-by shooting last year now has a new place to call home.

Amya Catching got the chance to see the home that was built for her at an open house on Wednesday.

BIA Cares built the home with the help of community donations.

The home was designed specifically for Catching’s needs.

Catching was paralyzed from the chest down after several shots were fired into the home where she was having a sleepover to celebrate her 12th birthday.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Friday on the finished home.

Catching and her family plan to move in after Thanksgiving.
