Tucker’s House serves the Middle Tennessee area, home to cutting-edge pediatric medical facilities that draw families to our community from all over the country. Families of children with special needs make this area home to be close to this excellent medical care for their children. Many of these families live in homes that are ill-equipped and even unsafe for their children. There is a profound and unending need in our community for these families to have access to the resources they need to make their homes safe, accessible, and inclusive. Unfortunately, a large majority of these families can’t afford the cost of these modifications. Not only is this unsafe for the child, but also for all caregivers (often women), who are repeatedly lifting, carrying, and transferring their growing child. Most caregivers, who are the primary caregivers for the child’s entire life, experience chronic pain and injuries of their own.
Pediatric Physical Therapist, Sandra Zaccari says, “I see the challenges these families face every day for their children to perform activities of daily living. An inadequate home multiplies the challenges both physically and emotionally. Tucker’s House is helping meet a profound and unending need in our community. The home retrofits that Tucker’s House does for these families are truly life changing!”
