2017 Habitat High Build
Habitat High helps cultivate the next generation of community-minded young people by providing high school students an opportunity to raise funds for and actually construct a Habitat home for a lower-income family. Since 1997, high school students have built 16 homes in Williamson County. This year’s home will be number 17!
Thank you to our 207 Habitat High Partner Schools: Brentwood High School, Centennial High School, Currey Ingram Academy, Franklin High School, Independence High School, Ravenwood High School, and Summit High School. In addition, thank you to our community sponsors, First Farmers Bank and Lasko Products.

We are excited to welcome Kayla White to the Habitat homeownership program.
Kayla works at the Drury Plaza Hotel in Franklin and drives more than 60 miles roundtrip to work. She lives in an area that she describes as “less than optimum” for her eight-year-old-son’s upbringing. She looks forward to being part of a neighborhood where Javin can play with other kids.
The chance to buy a home of her own is a dream come true for the single mother who experienced homelessness as a child. “My mother and I would have to wander all night, not knowing where we would lay our heads. Thanks to the goodness of a stranger, we got back on our feet. Someone gave us a hand up, much as Habitat is doing now. I am so grateful to my sponsors for believing in me. I want to give them a big hug, look them in the eyes, and say thank you.”
Construction on the White home begins on February 25, 2017 in Columbia. The dedication is projected for March 6, 2017. Learn more about the White family.
Thank you to our sponsors!
