2018 Habitat High Build
Habitat High helps cultivate the next generation of community-minded young people by providing high school students an opportunity to raise funds for and actually construct a Habitat home for a lower-income family. Since 1997, high school students have built 17 homes in Williamson County. This year’s home will be number 18!
Thank you to our 2018 Habitat High Partner Schools: Brentwood High School, Centennial High School, Currey Ingram Academy, Franklin High School, Harpeth Christian Tutorial, Independence High School, Ravenwood High School, and Summit High School.

We are excited to welcome Carlesta Jones to the Habitat homeownership program.
Carlesta Jones is a native of Columbia, Tennessee and attended Columbia Central High School. She has three children: Lamanus, age 9; Jaseanti, age 5; and baby Courtney, 3 months.
Lamanus, Carlesta’s 9 year old son, is autistic and struggles at school and making friends. “In our current area, it is hard for him to go outside and play. Neighborhood children tease him, and it’s not easy. He also has a tendency to wander off, so I need to be with him at all times when he is outside to make sure he is okay. We look forward to having a fenced yard where Lamanus can get outside and stretch his legs without me hovering over him and worrying about him. I am very thankful for this opportunity and know it will be a great blessing for my children. Thank you one thousand times to everyone that is involved with my build!”
Construction on the Jones home begins on February 24, 2018 in Columbia. The dedication is projected for April 26, 2017. Learn more about the Jones family.
