Scott Brothers Kick Off Home is Key in Nashville
Jonathan and Drew Scott from the highly popular HGTV series "The Property Brothers" were in town on April 2 to help two local future Habitat homeowners, Ashlee and Amanda, begin construction on their new homes. The Brothers were here to kick off Home is the Key, Habitat for Humanity’s second annual nationwide campaign. The campaign, which runs the month of April, convenes sponsors, celebrities and community leaders to drive support for the critical need of affordable housing across the United States.
“Purchasing a home is increasingly out of reach for far too many people across the country,”Drew Scott said. “By supporting the #HomeIsTheKey campaign, we can all play a role in building more homes and more opportunities for families.”
“At Habitat for Humanity, we have long known that home is the key to a better life,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “For more than 40 years, we have helped more than 13 million people become empowered to build better lives forthemselves and their families. But with more than 18 million U.S. families paying more than half their income on housing, it is clear that so much more work needs to be done."

In 1985, Nashville leaders decided to be a part of the extraordinary ministry of the Habitat for Humanity movement. With only a handful of volunteers, it often took up to a year to complete one house, but the positive effects were clear and the volunteer passion was unwavering. To date, Nashville Habitat has built or recycled more than 1,090 homes, more than 812 locally, serving more than 2,789 family members including 1,768 children, and celebrated its 500th build in 2012.
