2018 Fall Neighborhood Build
During the 2018 Fall Neighborhood Build, businesses and individuals come together to raise $70,000 to build an affordable home for a local family in need. We would like to thank our 2018 sponsors Community Health Services, First Farmers Bank, and Fifth Third Bank for their financial support this year.
We are excited to welcome Kennita Black to our homeownership program.
Kennita Black has worked for Arby’s in Columbia for the past six years and spends her time off focused on her daughters: 10-year-old Ja’Kireya, 9-year-old Ramiya, and 4-year-old A’Keliona. She feels at home in her hometown, Columbia, and wants build on that for her daughters.
“I want people to know that I am a hard worker and I do the very best that I can for my family. My mother raised my four sisters and me by herself and struggled to provide for us. I want my girls to have more than I had growing up. I want them to feel safe, secure, and to know that there is a good future ahead for them.”
