A Nashville family with two children with disabilities now has a much needed upgrade to their home.

The project was coordinated through Tucker’s House and Turner Construction.  Crews spent the day at the home adding a walk in closet to an existing bedroom, and making a bathroom wheelchair accessible.  About 20 people helped with the project.

“It is so rewarding to be able to give back to a family who will really benefit from the project,” said Kevin Williams, SPD Manager at Turner Construction.

Turner Construction has teamed up with the non-profit organization, Tucker’s House, for other projects in the past.  Employees volunteer their time to help families with children with disabilities.  Turner Construction also participated in an annual event called, “Paint the Town Blue,” where employees participated in seven community service projects throughout middle Tennessee.

For Chanda Cockrell, and her children, Zyon and Zac, the effort means a lot, and will help her children be more independent.

“It has truly warmed my heart,” said Cockrell.  “It has given me hope for humanity, that people are caring enough to do this.”

The project will take about a week to complete.
