Wilson Breaks Ground for
Wilson Houses of Hope raises more than $20,000
Wilson Division of Habitat of Greater Nashville raised more than $21,650 at its first annual Houses of Hope fundraiser at the College Hills Church of Christ. Voice of Tennessee Titans, Mike Keith, was guest speaker. Wilson Director Tory Tredway handed out three awards recognizing community partners. Rita Redmond received the Spirit of Volunteerism Award, Father Pat Kibby of St. Stephens Catholic Church received the Spirit of Habitat Award, and the Community Partnership Award was received by Scott Jasper on behalf of Wilson Bank & Trust. Habitat homeowners Linda Gray and Sarah Caves told the crowd about their homeownership journey. Gray raised her two sons as a single parent for 14 years before she got laid off, losing her home. She applied for a Habitat home and was part of the Builder's Blitz that built her home in five days. "Habitat not only builds houses, they build dreams," she told the crowd. Caves will be the next Wilson County Habitat homeowner when the Women Build gets underway in June.

Wilson Division joins Greater Nashville
The Wilson County Habitat began in 1993, with the first home built in 1994 (which is still occupied by the original homeowner), and merged with Habitat of Greater Nashville in July of 2012. Wilson Habitat has now built 56 houses and served 58 families. In May 2012, Habitat conducted its first Blitz Build, completing a house in five consecutive days with the support of 30 local businesses from local construction industries.
