Homes for the Holidays Turns 20 and Celebrates with a National Champion!
2017 marks 20 years of service for our Homes for the Holidays Program and is also a special year for a former HFTH recipient, Deshaun Watson. On January 9, Watson earned college football’s national title as quarterback of the Clemson Tigers, but ten years ago Watson, along with his mother and three siblings, was the 61st recipient family residing in the Atlanta area (Gainesville, GA).
Since then, WDC has reached more than 152 families in 15 markets. We are so grateful for each donor and friend who has helped us achieve this milestone. We congratulate Deshaun on his monumental accomplishment of becoming national champion!
Homes for the Holidays (HFTH) has made homeownership more affordable since 1997. Since its inception, HFTH has provided economically-disadvantaged single parents and their children with comprehensive programming for first-time homeownership. All families are selected through a Habitat for Humanity affiliate and/or homeownership program.
Your contribution of $28 today will make a tremendous impact on the lives of more families and youth tomorrow!
In addition to education, nutrition and financial literacy programming, participating families who must demonstrate a commitment to achieving financial independence and stability through homeownership will receive full home furnishings, food and down-payment assistance for their new home.
HFTH was founded under the umbrella of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers community relations department during Warrick Dunn’s first year in the NFL. It extends his late mother’s dream to other single parents working towards first-time homeownership.
