Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury is happy to welcome D’Angelo, his wife, Tierra, and their children Gabriella (7), Arianna (5), Mar’riana (3), and Josiah (1) into the Homeownership Program.
D’Angelo is originally from Mobile, Alabama, but relocated to Columbia, TN in high school. He was raised in a close-knit family, always playing games with his younger brother and sister. Tierra grew up in Columbia, TN alongside her five siblings. She sadly lost her father at a young age, so her family had to frequently move throughout her childhood. For her, providing a stable, permanent space for their family to call home is truly a blessing.
D’ Angelo currently works at Magna Seating of Spring Hill as a utility floater and aspires to attend trade school for industrial maintenance and one day hopes to start his own business. His wife, Tierra, has her hands full as a stay-at-home mom for their four lively children.
In his spare time, D’Angelo enjoys fishing, hunting, working on cars, and spending time with his kids. His favorite activity, of course, is being a father. “We like being adventurous and doing things together as a family,” he states. Tierra loves to cook and is excited to prepare home-cooked meals in her own kitchen.
This home is a dream come true for the Bettis family. Although becoming homeowners has been a lifelong goal for the Bettis family, they were not able to qualify for traditional mortgage options. The family’s present living conditions are unsafe and overcrowded, resulting in their three daughters sharing a cramped bedroom.
Through the Habitat Homeownership Program, his children will finally have bedrooms of their own and the Bettis family will have a safe space where they will make lasting memories together.
