You Did It Elisabeth!

 

Dickson Habitat for Humanity celebrated Elisabeth's hard work and dedication in October when she cut the ribbon to her new Habitat home thanks to a caring community of supporters. 

 

Elisabeth was born in Illinois and followed her father to Tennessee upon his retirement. She enjoys the calmer atmosphere of Dickson County as compared to Chicago. She currently works for Asurion and hopes to be in a position of making a difference in the lives of others.

 

Elisabeth is a hardworking parent of two children and enjoys cooking and spending time with her family and friends. “When we have family night, we enjoy baking, making crafts, and visiting the local park,” said Elisabeth. She added that her children inspire her to be strong and maintain a positive attitude in any situation. After being accepted into the Habitat program, her daughter was asked what she was most thankful for. She simply replied, “Our home.”

 

For Elisabeth, being a Habitat homeowner will allow her to have stability and an affordable home. “I am so excited that my children will have their own room and a backyard,” she added.

 

Elisabeth is grateful for her sponsors and all of the support she is receiving from the community. “I thank God and everyone who is making this possible. It’s a huge blessing,” she said. 

 

Sponsors for the build include: High Noon Rotary Club of Dickson, Fellowship Sunday School Class of Dickson First United Methodist Church, Dickson First United Methodist Church, Pinnacle Financial Partners, Porcelain Industries, Armstrong Hardwood Flooring, GNAR – Dickson Chapter, First Farmers and Merchants Bank, David and Martha Shepard, Middle Tennessee Lumber, and First Federal Bank.

 


Dickson Habitat Dedicates 30th Home

 

Dickson Habitat for Humanity dedicated its 30th home for a family of five as part of a Publix Super Markets Charities $4 million grant to Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the Southeast to build homes for low-income families. “This generous gift sponsored a home for a family in need in our area. Publix and Publix Charities are great partners and we are thankful for their involvement in our community,” says Jeff Bennett, director of Dickson Habitat.

2016 Build Starts Feb. 27! 

'Without you this dream would not be possible...'

Daniel was born in Virginia and moved to Dickson in 2005. He currently works in the rehabilitative services industry. Cassandra grew up in Charlotte, TN where she has fond memories of her family and had childhood dreams of becoming a chef. She works for Domino’s Pizza, where she is currently serving as crew chief. Daniel explains that Cassandra was his high school sweetheart: “We met our freshman year at Dickson High School and began dating two years later,” he said.

 

Being Habitat homeowners will allow them to have stable and affordable housing. They decided to own a house when they started their family, but the constraints of a traditional bank mortgage made homeownership seem out of reach. Cassandra’s father told them about the possibility of homeownership through Habitat for Humanity, which he heard about from a coworker who is also a Habitat homeowner. For Cassandra and Daniel, the most exciting aspects of being future Habitat homeowners are building the house for their family and having a nice kitchen to cook family meals.

 

Cassandra and Daniel are extremely grateful to their Habitat sponsors and volunteers. “Without you this dream would be not possible,” said Cassandra. 

 

Sponsor: Publix Super Markets Charities
Publix Super Markets Charities donated $4 million to Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the Southeast to build homes for families. This generous gift allows Dickson Habitat to build a home this spring. 

 


The Dickson Habitat was founded in 1994 by the Dickson County Ministerial Fellowship and built its first home in 1996. In July 2007, Habitat of Greater Nashville merged with the Dickson Habitat affiliate and built its first combined home that year. Dickson Habitat has built 28 homes since inception and opened the Dickson ReStore in 2011.
