Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury is happy to welcome De’Sheria McClain, her son, Jaiden (15), and her daughter, Kamiyah (8) to the Homeownership Program.
Born and raised in Columbia, TN, De’Sheria attended Columbia Central High School before earning her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Tennessee State University.
De’Sheria works as a program case manager for South Central Tennessee Workforce Alliance, a non-profit that specializes in reentry, workforce development, and literacy.
Through her role, she connects clients with the resources and community support they need to succeed. From rehab facilities or transitional housing to counseling, clothing, or education opportunities.
“My favorite part of my job is seeing when someone achieves one of their goals or gets the proper help they were needing. To see people, smile about getting their GED or graduating from rehab is always a great feeling,” she shares.
After renting apartments for the past eight years, the McClain family is excited to have a permanent place to call home. “Owning a home will provide a safe environment for my children, stability, and a place to always come back to.” she remarks.
De’Sheria is looking forward to hosting holidays, having more space for their pets, and spending quality time together as a family playing games and doing karaoke.
“I want to let you know how much I appreciate everyone giving me this opportunity for a new start for me and my family. The path to homeownership has been a goal of mine for quite a while and I am excited about what is to come next. I could not have done this without your help.”
Congratulations, McClain family!
