Barbara Sumney Marshall who heads the Jubilee House, a nonprofit that provides housing to homeless female veterans is being accused by the North Carolina Attorney General’s Office and the Secretary of State’s Office of soliciting charitable contributions without a license, among other violations of state law.

The Fayetteville woman was informed Monday in a letter that state agencies are ready to file suit to shut down the organization, unless she relinquishes her financial records and information about the charity’s operations, ceases all charitable solicitations and hires a CPA for a complete audit.

You may recall Jubilee House was built on Langdon Street in 2011 for the ABC reality show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”  Marshall also is president of Steps & Stages Disabled Veterans Resource Agency, which has been under investigation for several years by the Charitable Solicitation Licensing Section of the Secretary of State’s Office.

Marshall has 20 days to comply with the state’s demands, or the agencies plan to seek a court order dissolving Steps & Stages.  She was jailed briefly in late 2013 for refusing to turn over documents from Steps & Stages to state investigators.

Officials began looking into the nonprofit’s license after homeless advocates complained that Marshall turned women away from Jubilee House.
