Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury is happy to welcome D’Angelo, his wife, Tierra, and their children Gabriella (7), Arianna (5), Mar’riana (3), and Josiah (1) into the Homeownership Program.
D’Angelo is originally from Mobile, Alabama, but relocated to Columbia, TN in high school. He was raised in a close-knit family, always playing games with his younger brother and sister. Tierra grew up in Columbia, TN alongside her five siblings. She sadly lost her father at a young age, so her family had to frequently move throughout her childhood. For her, providing a stable, permanent space for their family to call home is truly a blessing.
D’ Angelo currently works at Magna Seating of Spring Hill as a utility floater and aspires to attend trade school for industrial maintenance and one day hopes to start his own business. His wife, Tierra, has her hands full as a stay-at-home mom for their four lively children.
In his spare time, D’Angelo enjoys fishing, hunting, working on cars, and spending time with his kids. His favorite activity, of course, is being a father. “We like being adventurous and doing things together as a family,” he states. Tierra loves to cook and is excited to prepare home-cooked meals in her own kitchen.
This home is a dream come true for the Bettis family. Although becoming homeowners has been a lifelong goal for the Bettis family, they were not able to qualify for traditional mortgage options. The family’s present living conditions are unsafe and overcrowded, resulting in their three daughters sharing a cramped bedroom.
Through the Habitat Homeownership Program, his children will finally have bedrooms of their own and the Bettis family will have a safe space where they will make lasting memories together.
Partner Spotlight: Jack McCann
Most might think of a Real Estate Closing Attorney as the person who simply prepares closing documents and conducts a real estate transaction. However, Jack McCann far exceeds the normal duties and expectations of a closing attorney.
McCann & Hubbard has handled many thousands of transactions and assisted thousands of clients since its founding on October 1, 2003. Jack joined our Board of Directors in 2005 and served until 2010. In 2009, Jack began conducting our real estate closings and has completed approximately 140 to date while providing these services at only 20% of his normal rates. This ultimately assists homeowners with out-of-pocket costs and our affiliate’s budget.
Becoming a first-time homebuyer is an undertaking Jack doesn’t take lightly. He is always engaged and attentive, making certain the family understands their financial commitment.
His services never stop at the closing table! Beyond this service, he provides constant guidance and direction, daily, in many areas, such as HOA issues, delinquency escalations, FREE preparation of Last Will and Testaments to our families, and title and legal issues as they arise, and so much more. Jack has never asked to be compensated for these additional tasks, therefore provides these services at ZERO cost to our affiliate.
It is obvious to our staff and our families that his heart truly believes and practices a shared vision in our community and this world.
Thank God for awesome humans like Jack McCann, who choose to pay it forward in the gift of knowledge and service, ultimately improving the lives of others.
