2021 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: Brentwood Noon Rotary Club, Gresham Smith, HCA Healthcare/TriStar Health, Jackson National Insurance, National Funeral Directors Association, Schneider Electric, and Wells Fargo,
We are excited to welcome the Willingham Family to our homeownership program.
Patricia Willingham was born in Pulaski, TN and attended Giles County High School. Her mother was a nanny and a domestic worker, and her father was a farm worker who also trained horses. Sadly, her birth mother passed away when Patricia was just 18 months old. She and her three cousins were raised by her great aunt who she lovingly refers to as “Moma” in what Patricia notes was a “shack with four rooms.” She explains, “We didn’t have much but we did have love, family, and God!”
“I give honor and praise to God for my sponsors,” she shares. “They are helping me achieve my dream of being a homeowner. I will have a sense of accomplishment knowing this is my forever home and that I will never have to move due to rent increases again! I am 72 years old. You are never too old for your dreams to come true!”
Thank you to our sponsors!
