“Archie, a teacher at Glenn Hills Middle School and a single mother to four boys, purchased her new Ash Street home about a week ago but wasn’t allowed to move in until Tuesday. That’s because Warrick Dunn Charities was busy outfitting the home with thousands of dollars worth of furnishings, including a fully stocked refrigerator and cabinets.”
“It’s my mom’s legacy,” says Dunn of his program, Home for the Holidays, which works with Habitat for Humanity and other partners to provide opportunities for homeownership. “I’m living out her dream through other single parents. And it’s been one of the greatest joys.”
