The 33rd Home Build is Set for Saturday


Dickson Habitat for Humanity will begin construction this Saturday at 7:30 a.m. on its 33rd Habitat home in the community. The build will continue for three more weekends with the home dedication planned for March 25 at 2 p.m.

 “Affordable housing is becoming harder and harder to find,” says Bennett. “That’s why programs like Habitat are so valuable. We not only provide the opportunity to purchase an affordable home, but we also provide education as part of the home buying process. In addition, Habitat homes are so well built, homeowners save approximately $25,000 in electric costs over the life of the mortgage.”

 Christie, the future Habitat homeowner who will begin her build on Saturday, is a lifelong resident of Dickson County. She has worked at a truckload carrier company for nearly 13 years. She enjoys the small town setting of Dickson and loves being a Dickson County Cougar football mom. Christie is the mother of two boys who are both very active in the local community. She is especially proud of their accomplishments in school and football. Christie said her sons inspire her to be strong and work hard.

“Christie’s hard work can be seen each day she walks into the Habitat classroom. As she nears the end of the educational component of the Habitat program, I’m excited to watch her turn this house into a home. We are extremely proud of her progress,” says Bennett.

Christie and her family currently live in a two-bedroom apartment where her sons share a room. She believes owning a home will give her family more space and more security with a fixed monthly payment. Habitat homeowners pay a zero percent APR mortgage making the homes affordable.

 “Thank you so much for helping my family’s dreams come true. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a new homeowner. The generosity of our sponsors and volunteers mean so much to my family,” she said.

Community sponsors include: Publix Super Markets Charities, Inc., Missy Chandler, David and Martha Shepard, Westfield Insurance Foundation, HCA Foundation, U.S. Bank Foundation, Armstrong Flooring Foundation, GrindersEdge, Dickson First United Methodist Church, United Way of Dickson County.
