Fall Community build for Alawi and Nihad

2018 Fall Community Build

Alawi and Nihad lived and worked in Nashville and wanted the opportunity to live in a small town. The couple are originally from Iraq. Alawi lived in a refugee camp for five years before being resettled to America in 1996 with the help of Catholic Charities. Nihad followed in 2011. Nihad works for N&E Enterprises supporting the family of four. Alawi used to work two jobs but had difficulty working after a car accident in 2005.  He now helps care for the children and hopes to work part-time in the future.

“I want my children to realize the dream … that they can own a home of their own,” says Nihad. “Homeownership will make me very proud.”

To their sponsors and volunteers Alawi says, “It is a blessing to get this help. We could not do it without you.” Nihad adds, “ We appreciate it beyond words. We are so happy.”

Fall build for John and Lauren sponsored by Danny and Karen Dugan

2018 Fall Dugan Build

Wilson Habitat for Humanity celebrated with sponsors and volunteers its 76th home dedication ceremony  for a family of five who needed the stability of a mortgage payment and affordable utilities, says Tory Tredway, director, Wilson Habitat for Humanity.

John and Lauren decided they needed to do something to create a more stable, self-reliant future for their family and applied for Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership program.

“This Habitat home will be such a huge blessing to us. It will help us have more time together as a family and save money that we currently pay towards excessive utilities,” says Lauren.

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 73 homes and renovated three, serving 76 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.
