NC looks into licensing of ‘Extreme Makeover’ home

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — North Carolina officials are looking into whether a Fayetteville charity that appeared on the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” television show has a license to solicit donations.

The Fayetteville Observer reports that the secretary of state’s office can find no license for the charity that operates the Jubilee House.

The shelter for homeless women military veterans was refurbished as part of the television program last year. About 4,000 volunteers, including first lady Michelle Obama, donated time to repairing the 5,000-square-foot home.

The Navy veteran who runs the charity, Barbara Marshall, did not immediately respond to questions about the licensing issue.

An informal group of advisors to the charity is scheduled to meet Tuesday.
