Thrivent Builds Home
In March 2021, Thrivent Financial and Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury (HFHWM) broke ground on a home in the Willow Crest neighborhood in Fairview, TN, continuing the partnership to support local affordable housing efforts. This is the third home partnership for HFHWM and Thrivent; Thrivent awarded $70,000 to fund construction of the home.
From the beginning of the Thrivent and Habitat partnership in 2005, Thrivent and its members have now contributed more than $240 million and more than 5.5 million volunteer hours across the U.S. and around the world. This has resulted in thousands of families and individuals obtaining strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter, as well as strengthening hundreds of communities.

We are excited to welcome Anderson family to our homeownership program.
Yvonne Anderson works full-time at works full-time as at Claiborne and Hughes Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, preparing healthy meals for center’s residents. She loves to cook so much that in her spare time you can find her doing just that for her own family. Her favorite type of food to prepare is southern cuisine, especially chicken and dressing.
Her four children have lots of different interests that keep their mother very busy. Avonna loves to dance and is on her school’s step team, and Ashanti also enjoys dancing and making Tik Tok videos. Travon plays football, runs track, and is a straight-A student. Kevontae enjoys playing video games, reading, writing, and playing football.
Yvonne is looking forward to what homeownership will bring and eager to meet her new neighbors. She loves working on the build site and wields a mean nail gun. “I am excited to be in a new environment and to give my kids a stable, beautiful home,” she explains. “I like knowing that I am part of constructing my own house.”
