2020 Fall Community Build
During the Fall Community Build, local businesses and organizations come together to raise $70,000 to build an affordable home for a local family in need. We would like to thank the following sponsors for their generous support of this build Schneider Electric, Community Health Systems, Jackson National Insurance, St. Philip Church, Wells Fargo, Franklin Christian Church, Fourth Ave Church of Christ, St. Andrew Lutheran Church, and Simmons Bank.
We are excited to welcome the Woods Family to our homeownership program.
Sara Woods grew up in Franklin and attended Centennial High School where she played volleyball and participated in JROTC. The single mother of two now works full-time at Heritage Medical Associates. “I didn’t attend college and had my son right out of high school. I made my way from working at Kroger to now working in the medical field.”
Growing up, Sara watched her mother move from a modular home to owning the home where she, Sara, and Sara’s children reside today. Sara wants the same stability for her two children and wants them to “grow up in a place they love.” Her second grader, Joseph, loves being outdoors. He especially likes mowing the yard and working in the garden. Her daughter Madison loves playing with her great-grandfather’s handmade toys. Sara has decided to surprise Joseph and Madison about their new home on dedication day!
I would like to tell my sponsors, “Thank you for not giving up on others and for giving us a chance to give our babies a chance. Thank you for paying it forward and being such a blessing in our lives!”
Sara’s home build began in September in Fairview, TN and is slated to be completed by November. She will close on her home and move in just in time for Christmas.
