Jessica Williams, and her son, Brendon, 9, accepted the keys to their new Habitat home Nov. 17 at Alydar Drive as Wilson Habitat closed out the 2013 build season completing our 59th home in Wilson County. Jessica was sponsored by North America Administrators and The Memorial Foundation as well as local volunteer groups who came out to help build her home. 

“This is a special build for a special lady who has worked hard to provide stability for herself and her son,” said Tory Tredway, director of Wilson Habitat. “We have been impressed by Jessica and her work ethic.  Her commitment to completing our program and providing a home for her son are commendable.  We’re thankful for the community’s support as she continues her journey to a new future.”

Creating a home for Brendon is what inspires Jessica to keep working hard to change their future. She relays she had lost faith in humanity before coming to Habitat for help. She became homeless with a small child and eventually moved into a homeless shelter in Florida where she lived for 10 months, saving money to once again become independent. She made her way to Tennessee to live closer to family and applied for a Habitat home for herself and son, Brendon. She currently works in an administrative position in the HR department of a local imaging company and loves to spend her free time with her son. 

Special thanks to the following groups who have volunteered their time to build this house for Jessica and Brendon:

·      Employees and families of North America Administrators
·      Family and friends of Danny and Karen Dugan
·      Wilson County Schools students and faculty
·      Bridgestone Distribution Center employees
·      Cumberland University students and faculty
·      International Assurance of Tennessee employees
