Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville is excited to welcome the Robertson County Habitat for Humanity as part of its expanding family, announced Danny Herron, president and CEO of Habitat of Greater Nashville. Jeff Bennett, director of divisions, will head up the fundraising and homeowner outreach in Robertson County. Bennett oversees the Wilson, Cheatham and Dickson divisions.
"We are so excited to begin work in Robertson County," says Bennett. "The current real estate market is making it so difficult for families to purchase quality affordable homes and live in the towns they work in. We have established a strong committed Community Board of local residents to help us build homes, communities and hope."
Bennett says 2021 is an organizational year having established the Community Board who will provide guidance on how Habitat can best serve Robertson County.
