'Without you this dream would not be possible...'

Daniel was born in Virginia and moved to Dickson in 2005. He currently works in the rehabilitative services industry. Cassandra grew up in Charlotte, TN where she has fond memories of her family and had childhood dreams of becoming a chef. She works for Domino’s Pizza, where she is currently serving as crew chief. Daniel explains that Cassandra was his high school sweetheart: “We met our freshman year at Dickson High School and began dating two years later,” he said.

 

Being Habitat homeowners will allow them to have stable and affordable housing. They decided to own a house when they started their family, but the constraints of a traditional bank mortgage made homeownership seem out of reach. Cassandra’s father told them about the possibility of homeownership through Habitat for Humanity, which he heard about from a coworker who is also a Habitat homeowner. For Cassandra and Daniel, the most exciting aspects of being future Habitat homeowners are building the house for their family and having a nice kitchen to cook family meals.

 

Cassandra and Daniel are extremely grateful to their Habitat sponsors and volunteers. “Without you this dream would be not possible,” said Cassandra. 

 

Sponsor: Publix Super Markets Charities
Publix Super Markets Charities donated $4 million to Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the Southeast to build homes for families. This generous gift allows Dickson Habitat to build a home this spring. 

 


The Dickson Habitat was founded in 1994 by the Dickson County Ministerial Fellowship and built its first home in 1996. In July 2007, Habitat of Greater Nashville merged with the Dickson Habitat affiliate and built its first combined home that year. Dickson Habitat has built 28 homes since inception and opened the Dickson ReStore in 2011.
