Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville will dedicate its first four homes of the spring build, Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Hallmark subdivision in Antioch. Habitat will help 37 low-income families purchase homes this year said Danny Herron, president and CEO of Habitat of Greater Nashville.
“Habitat families work so hard alongside their sponsors and volunteers to better their lives through homeownership. They will pay a zero percent interest mortgage and have attended homeownership classes the past year. It is truly a gratifying celebration for not only the homeowners, but also their sponsors who have changed the trajectory of these individual and families in such a positive way,” said Herron.
Woodmont Christian Church, Ingram Entertainment, Inc. will help Asad Mohamed and Asma Abood. Kirkland’s is sponsoring Haymanot Zewdu. Kirkland’s has been a long-time supporter of Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore. This is their first home sponsorship. Publix Super Markets Charities (PSMC) is sponsoring Ramadhan Mohammed and Jiyan Salman. PSMC announced in December 2016 that it would donate $5.5 million to Habitat affiliates across the Southeast, which equates to 60 new Habitat for Humanity home builds. Abinet Ashenafi is being sponsored by Geodis, where she works, and several other sponsors: Caterpillar Financial Services Corp., the Tennessee Housing Development Agency, Google Fiber, LetterLogic, Truxton Trust, and Vanderbilt University Habitat for Humanity.
In 1985, Nashville leaders decided to be a part of the extraordinary ministry of the Habitat for Humanity movement. With only a handful of volunteers, it often took up to a year to complete one house, but the positive effects were clear and the volunteer passion was unwavering. To date, Nashville Habitat has built or recycled more than 1,090 homes, more than 812 locally, serving more than 2,789 family members including 1,768 children, and celebrated its 500th build in 2012.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
