Our vision is for every child and young adult with disabilities to have a safe and accessible home.
Tucker’s House is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides home modifications for families of children with disabilities to make their homes safer and more accessible.
I started Tucker’s House in 2009 because I believe every child with a disability—and their family—needs a safe, functional home to live, grow, and thrive in.
The catalyst for this mission began with the birth of my beloved grandson Tucker. In 2006, Tucker bounded into this world like any other healthy baby boy. However, on day two of his precious life, he suddenly started having seizures. The life-threatening condition left Tucker without the ability to talk or walk. And it left his young parents facing unfamiliar emotional, medical, and financial challenges.
By the time Tucker was three, his parents, Josh and Alisha, had to find the means to retrofit their home to make it safe and functional for Tucker, his therapy sessions, and their whole family.
I eagerly took on this task. I talked with countless therapists, local agencies, and other families facing similar challenges. I found zero financial resources designed to help these families make their homes safe and functional.
In 2009, Tucker’s House started rewriting that story. We linked arms with local builders, therapists, donors, and special needs families in Middle Tennessee. Over time we completed hundreds of individualized home modifications for families with all different kinds of needs. It has been these families and children all along the way who have taught us what this community needs.
The best part of this story? We’re just getting started!
