It’s *Father’s Day and **Juneteenth Weekends!

First Baptist Castle Street and First Cumberland Presbyterian Church folks can sign up with their church for 1-hour shifts (+ :30 prep) to help build ALL of the walls for a Habitat house (in just 5 hours!) for Future Homeowner Lisa! As the walls are built, they will be used to construct a temporary house – right there in our parking lot!
*Volunteers ages 14 and over (those kids can join their Fathers and Mothers on the build!) No skills needed!
Dunking Booth!! Don’t you want to dunk Pastor McCarroll or Pastor Warren?! Yes!
Please also bring your household items to be recycled and resold in the Habitat ReStore! We’re now taking home electronics too. >Items we accept at the ReStore<
Future Homeowner Lisa has been attending Habitat’s Financial Literacy and Homeowner Education program and will complete 300 hours of sweat equity, working on the construction or her house as well as other Habitat houses and the Habitat ReStore.
Lisa has worked at Genesco for the last nineteen years. She has two children and three grandchildren. One of her greatest joys has been watching her children grow and become parents themselves. Lisa was married for eighteen years and even though they eventually separated, the family remained very close.
Lisa has always lived in apartments but dreamed of owning her own home. She never thought that dream could come true – and didn’t think she’d make it into the Habitat program! “I never thought I would get to experience something like this!” Lisa says.
She is enjoying her homeownership journey and being surrounded by caring people at RCHFH that really want to see her dream come true.
** About Juneteenth
Juneteenth is a holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. It is also called Emancipation Day or Juneteenth Independence Day. The name “Juneteenth” references the date of the holiday, combining the words “June” and “nineteenth.”
