Carrington House: The Latest on the Homes for the Miles and Liscomb Families

August 22, 2020

On May 18, 2020, Carrington House broke ground on a new home for U.S. Army Sergeant 1st Class Matthew Miles. The expected build time was 12 months. 

Since then, the project is on schedule and progressing nicely. According to Clay Morgan, VP Facilities, “The grading and foundation work has been completed, as well as the rough framing and exterior sheathing; and windows currently are being installed. The Miles Family has completed the interior frame walk, and are fine tuning various details throughout the house to ensure accessibility for Matt.” 

Clay says that Matt and Maria Miles have been very engaged in the project, and visit the site regularly to view the progress. Weather and pandemic permitting, he says Carrington House hopes to complete the project by the end of the year. 

As for the Liscomb family home (pictured above), everyone was excited that the driveway was recently poured and completed. 

Carrington House, rooted in CCF’s Stability pillar, provides custom, adaptive housing for post-9/11 combat-wounded Veterans, enabling them to regain independence in their own homes. This is accomplished by repairing, renovating or constructing a home tailored to the specific needs of each Veteran and their family. To date, more than 23 homes have been built or remodeled by CCF to suit the needs of wounded Veterans and their families. 

In lieu of an in-person event for the 10th Annual Golf Classic, we’ve created sponsorship opportunities for our supporters and donors to have a direct impact on the homes in progress for U.S. Marine Corporal Michael Jernigan and U.S. Army Sergeant Matthew Melancon. Thank you for considering supporting Carrington House.
