As a single mother of four, finding a pathway to secure, affordable homeownership is a sigh of relief for Ebonee Hill.
The family currently lives in an overpriced, overcrowded apartment in the area. Ebonee’s children, Khiyah (17), Kayden (16), Jhayce (10), and Khayson (7) are forced to share two cramped bedrooms with one of the beds positioned in a closet in order to free up space.
Williamson County’s high rental market alone makes it challenging for Ms. Hill to make ends meet, but her budget is spread thin in order to pay for her daughter’s medical expenses, who is legally blind in one eye. In addition to having more room to grow, both financially and in their home, the Hill family will have a safe space that accommodates their unique needs.
Ebonee Hill has called Franklin, TN “home” all of her life. She attended Franklin High School before becoming a certified phlebotomist at a local technical college. Today, she is the Operations Assistant at Prime Health Services and coaches her son’s soccer team.
She has remained a loyal community member and neighbor, donating to several local charities every year when her finances permit. “Even though I don’t have much, I always find a way to give,” she shares.
Ms. Hill feels blessed to improve her family’s situation and is looking forward to feeling financially secure and independent.
“It’s a beautiful program and it’s more than buying a house– it’s giving opportunities to have a home and build a future with the help of a community,” Ebonee remarks.
The Hill family will move into their home this fall. Congratulations, Ebonee!
