Wilson's 65th Home Dedication Set for Sunday, Oct. 18

Wilson Habitat for Humanity dedicated its 65th Habitat home in Wilson County Sunday, Oct. 18 at 12 p.m. for Juannashia Keeley on a lot that was donated by The Glade Church, according to Tory Tredway, Wilson Habitat director.

“Each time we build a home for a local family, the process involves many people from the community. This time we owe special thanks to The Glade Church for donating the lot and Karen and Danny Dugan for being a full house sponsor for the third consecutive year,” said Tredway.

Juannashia’s home is sponsored in full by and Karen and Danny Dugan. 

Juannashia is the mother of two daughters. She says that she applied for the Habitat homeownership program to teach her girls “the sky is the limit!”  Juannashia was born and grew up in Lebanon and graduated from Wilson Central High School. She went on to obtain her medical billing and coding degree from Tennessee College of Applied Technology at Hartsville.  You can see her smiling face at McDonald’s on West Main Street in Lebanon where she has worked for more than five years as a department head.

History of Wilson Habitat

The work of Wilson Habitat began in 1992 with their first home built in 1994, which is still occupied by the original homeowner who paid off her mortgage with the help from an anonymous donor in 2014. Wilson Habitat has now built 65 homes and renovated three, serving 68 families. In May 2012, Wilson Habitat conducted its first Blitz Build, completing a house in five consecutive days with the support of 30 businesses from local construction industries.
