ABOUT TUCKER’S HOUSE
Tucker’s House is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has been developed to partner with the families of children with disabilities by providing the home renovation and retrofitting services and resources necessary to make their homes safe and more accessible.
We assist families in accessing resources that can help meet their specific immediate, intermediate and long term needs that make their home a place that is not only accessible and safe but where the child can carry out their necessary daily therapy and be as independent as possible.

Our Recent Lunch-N-Learn
We are so very grateful to our sponsors, Pinnacle Bank, Legacy Investment Planning and Innovations Group for making this lunch and learn possible!!! Thank you to all the people who came out to learn more about what Tucker’s House is doing to make the homes of children with special needs ages 3-22 yrs accessible, safer and an environment that they can be as independent as possible!
People that attended said they didn’t realize what a serious issue this is in our community! It is a REAL and sadly INEXHAUSTIBLE NEED!!! Please visit our website to hear more at www.tuckershouse.org.
For the last 6 years, I have assessed, drawn the plans, construction managed, managed volunteers, raised the funds, wrote grants, educated the community, and taken care of the business of Tucker’s House. Sandra Zaccari, a pediatric physical therapist and I have assessed 86 homes and done over 200 projects.
We now have someone that is helping raise the funds and write grants and I am training a construction manager. It is vital that we staff up to be able to handle this incredible need! I can’t do it alone and I am grateful that the word is getting out there and people are are realizing what a huge problem this is!!!
I received a call from a therapist from a premiere Therapy Center in Atlanta that said, Tucker’s House is so vital and we need a Tucker’s House everywhere in the United States. That is a huge vision….but right now, we just want to make sure we are serving the Middle Tennessee children to our very best ability!!!
Thank you to those that support the mission of Tucker’s House!!! These precious children and their families thank you too!!!
