2014 House of Faith
Rutherford County Habitat is coordinating a House of Faith Build in July 2014. This is a house sponsored and built in conjunction with faith-based groups and organizations in Rutherford County.
We call it the “House of Faith” build because we engage in the project believing that people in our faith communities will provide the finances and volunteer time necessary to help a family make their dream of home ownership a reality. The Faith Build gives congregations, businesses and organizations a tangible way to be the “hands and feet” of God’s love and compassion in the community.
To volunteer and help build the “House of Faith” please contact Megan Hutchings at 890-5877 ext 106 or email email@example.com
“A Month for the House of Faith”
30 days of giving for the House of Faith. The Calendar was created as a way for an individual that has already been blessed with a home and decent shelter to pay it forward in a small tangible way.
If you, your congregation, business or organization would like to participate in “A Month for the House of Faith” contact Angie Ezell at 890-5877 ext 103 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to have your 30 day calendar and a Habitat Home Bank to you.
Click on the 30 Day Calendar to view it.
“A Month for the House of Faith” will be available until October 2014.

MEET OUR HOMEOWNERS!
Sa'Mia & her Precious Daughters
While attending a weekly Bible Sa’Mia met a Habitat homeowner. It was through this Bible Study that she was encouraged to apply for a Habitat home. Although she feared an ultimate denial, she put her fear aside with much prayer and applied. To her surprise, she was accepted into the program and thus, her journey began.
On Sunday, February 9, 2014,Habitat staff members Lamyai Savely & Angie Ezell, stood before the First Baptist congregation & announced that she was the “2014 House of Faith” recipient. “I was overwhelmed & my legs were shaking so hard,” she recalled. Sa’Mia delights in the program & thoroughly enjoys the interaction with the partner families.
Sa’Mia & her daughters are thrilled about their new home! They visit the lot often to pray over the land & play in the yard. While the girls dream of rooms with pink & purple glitter, Sa’Mia has a different dream.......
“I envision a Legacy for my Daughters and a true HOUSE OF FAITH.”
“Our family greatly appreciates the support, sacrifice, and sponsorship for our home. May God’s abundant peace and blessings rest upon each of you! “
Oceana & Her Beautiful Family
While at the park playing with her children, Oceana began talking to a family that was going through the Habitat Program. After so many years of living in Section 8, Oceana had forgotten about the program. This time around she had high hopes of getting accepted. With nothing to lose, she decided to apply. In 2013 she received the news that she was indeed accepted as a partner family. Oceana was overjoyed.
Oceana has thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the program, but counts working on the houses as her favorite part. “I love working with the volunteers, learning how the homes are built, and watching fellow partner families receive their homes,” she said with a smile. “Everyone is so kind, caring, and amazing!” Oceana’s daughters have also put in their own sweat equity. They often babysit the twins so that Oceana can go out to the site to work and she has included them in major decisions concerning their lot and house plans. It truly has been a family effort.
This home will mean so much to Oceana and her children. It will give them the opportunity to feel ownership, make choices, and provide them with stability. Oceana is looking forward to planting a large garden, the boys hope to decorate their rooms with colors of red and knights with swords, and the girls are just happy with having space of their own.
Oceana would like to thank Schneider Electric for helping provide funding and volunteers for the family’s home build as well as thanking all of those who are making this dream a possibility.
