Carrington House: Update for the Miles Family
We broke ground on a new home for U.S. Army Sergeant 1st Class Matthew Miles on May 18, 2020. The expected build time is 12 months.
According to Clay Morgan, VP Facilities, the Miles project is on schedule and progressing nicely. “The grading and foundation work was completed earlier this month,” says Clay, “and the wall framing is coming along at an excellent pace. We expect rough framing to be complete by the end of the month, which will allow us to begin the interior work. Matt and Maria Miles have been very engaged in the project, and visit the site regularly to watch the progress. Weather and pandemic permitting, we are hoping to complete the project by the end of the year.”
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.
