Spring Build Starts May 30 for Kimberly Jones

As a direct support professional with Developmental Services, Kimberly Jones has assisted clients with disabilities for the past seven years. When she was 7 years old, Kimberly was going with her grandmother to get “play makeup” for being good in church when they were hit by a drunk driver. On impact she was ejected out of the car and had to be life-flighted to the hospital. “I realized God must have a purpose for me on Earth. Caring for others is what I love to do, so I take extra pride in the job I do daily with those who may not have a voice. The smallest things that I can do to make them comfortable or happy warms my heart,” she said of her second chance.

Kimberly currently lives in a home that her mother owns and is looking forward to owning her own home, just like her mother, father, and brother. She is looking forward to learning more about financial management and home maintenance while in the Habitat homeownership program. She will be paying a zero percent interest mortgage rate on her new Habitat home, which makes the home more affordable.

Kimberly plans to get a degree in nursing and continue to work in the healthcare field. She says that she has always been in a profession where she can help others, and that helping others is what she really enjoys doing.

To her sponsors and volunteers she says, “May God bless you for helping me and most of all, thank you. I hope I can help someone in the future as I have been helped.”

The Ribbon Has Been Cut!

Dickson Habitat celebrated its first dedication ceremony of 2014 for the Robison family on June 22 and its 27th home built in Dickson County.

Chad and Lauren both grew up in Dickson and have two children: Emma, 5, and Tristen, 3. To qualify for the Habitat program Chad and Lauren attended homeownership classes and worked alongside sponsors and volunteers to build their home for the opportunity to purchase their home with a zero percent interest mortgage rate. In addition, the family moved in with Lauren’s parents, and shared one bedroom to help save money for their closing costs. The couple is anxious to “never move again” and not worry about their rent increasing. Chad works for Kroger and Lauren stays at home to care for the family.

Sponsors for the build include:
Publix Super Markets Charities, Inc.
David Shepard Family
Scott Construction Group
Porcelain Industries
U.S. Bank
First Farmers and Merchants Bank

“Chad and Lauren have worked very hard for this opportunity and community sponsors and volunteers have made it possible for them to purchase their home. It is an exciting time for their family,” said Allen. Dickson Habitat will build its 28th home in the fall. To find out how you can get involved in this build or future builds, or for more information about Habitat in Dickson County, call Allen at 615-441-9967.


    

Enthusiasm Sparks Dickson Division Build
Founded in 1994 by the Dickson County Ministerial Fellowship, the Dickson Habitat for Humanity built its first home in 1996. Over the next 10 years, the Dickson Division brought 13 families home.

To increase the scope of its mission and to better serve families in Dickson County, the Dickson County Habitat for Humanity affiliate merged with Habitat of Greater Nashville in July 2007. The merger sparked an immediate influx of enthusiasm for the Habitat mission in the community, bringing new staff, expanded space, and a broad base of volunteers and sponsors to the new division.

Just months later in November 2007, the combined efforts of Dickson County and Habitat of Greater Nashville completed their first home together in nine days. Since 2007, Dickson has built two homes a year with the help of Habitat of Greater Nashville staff and a community of dedicated volunteers, allowing them to celebrate the incredible milestone of their 20th build in 2011. By 2011, Dickson Habitat opened their first ReStore enabling them to offer great deals to the public while also providing a new source of funding for building homes in their community.  Dickson Habitat has completed 28 homes serving 30 family members.
