Tucker’s House had a fruitful and productive year in 2021. We may have not left all of the challenges of the pandemic fully behind as we experienced increased costs and supply chain issues. However, with continued support, our organization thrived in living out our mission to help families who have children and young adults with disabilities to make their homes safer and more accessible.
We had some great highlights this year including a special visit from the First Lady of Tennessee, Maria Lee, who volunteered on one of our projects. You can visit our page on YouTube for a video recap of the day. We also had a chance with her visit to highlight the Governor’s Award of Excellence we received in 2020.
In addition, we went through a rebranding process and launched our new website at www.tuckershouse.org. Tucker’s House has grown up and changed in our 12 years and it was time to show some of that growth through our materials.
As we look back at the year, I wanted to share some of the impact made with contributions from our community. We were able to complete the following projects in Middle Tennessee:
- 31 Families Served
- 58 Caregivers Served
- 17 Home Assessments including home modification and architectural design recommendations
- 10 Accessible Bathrooms
- 9 Lift & Equipment Installs (4 Wall Lifts, 4 Stair Lifts, & 1 Vertical Lift)
- 20 Doorways Widened for Accessibility
- 5 Durable Medical Equipment Placements & Trainings
- 9 Ramps & 3 Railings
- Along with other various individualized projects to meet the accessibility needs of our families like fencing, driveway paving, sidewalks, bedroom additions, decks, and more
Wow! What a year it has been. I am also happy to report that we are planning to grow our program and projects by 15% in 2022 because of the generous support we have received!
I feel very fortunate to be a small part of the efforts made to support families who have children with disabilities. Before I became the Executive Director of Tucker’s House, our family were clients first. Our daughter Mikayla (pictured) was born with Dandy-Walker Syndrome and we received support from Tucker’s House before her passing in 2018.
You make a difference. Whether you support Tucker’s House or other non-profits in our community, thank you for making a difference.
Tucker’s House is a 501(c)3 non-profit in Middle Tennessee that serves families who have children or young adults with disabilities by making their homes safer and more accessible. We receive no state or federal funding and our ability to perform services depends on the support of our Middle Tennessee community. The average cost of a project is $15,000 and your continued support goes to help families have safe and accessible homes.
