Building future generations, one home at a time.
#GIVINGTUESDAY IS NOVEMBER 29, 2022
We have set a big goal: Raise $30,000 in a single day to close the gap to cover the full cost it takes to build Malaya and Meilani’s new home in the new year!
Knoxville Habitat for Humanity provides an opportunity for families to build and purchase an affordable home, but we build so much more than a house. We build strength. Stability. Opportunities. Safety. Healthier lives.
And we build a better future for children. Malaya and her sister, Meilani, look forward to leaving their small apartment with a history of safety and maintenance issues for a safe and permanent home where they each have their very own bedroom and a yard to play in, all within a close-knit community of other children who will become new and lifelong friends.
Like all parents in the Knoxville Habitat program, Malaya and Meilani’s mom, C’airra, works hard to build a better life for her children. But the growing number of families struggling to find a decent and affordable place to live often sacrifice necessities like healthy food, safe transportation and healthcare. No matter how hard they work to provide for their families, the cost of home is simply too high of a price to pay. This is an unacceptable issue to a growing crisis, because building a better future for Knox County and our local children starts with safe, decent and affordable housing.
Malaya and Meilani love cheerleading, and they’ll be cheering their mom on in the new year as C’airra begins building their future home with Knoxville Habitat for Humanity. Although a home sponsor will be helping with a portion of this home’s construction, we are counting on you this #GivingTuesday to close the gap to cover the full cost it takes to finish building their home. C’airra is earning sweat equity and doing all it takes to build a home for these precious girls – now, all they needs is you to cheer them on!
