NC reviews 'Extreme Makeover' home in Fayetteville


FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) -- The Secretary of State's Office in North Carolina is reviewing operations of an organization that serves homeless female veterans in Fayetteville in a facility that was constructed by the television show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" last year.

The Fayetteville Observer reported state investigators are interviewing former residents of Jubilee House and others as part of a review to determine if the Jubilee House is fulfilling its charitable mission.

The home is operated by Steps & Stages Disabled Veterans Resource Agency.

Liz Proctor with the Secretary of State's Office says the investigation is in the early stages.

Barbara Marshall with the agency has denied allegations that women and children have been kicked out of the home unnecessarily.

The agency earlier resolved issues about a license to solicit charitable donations.
