Strengthening Tri-Cities families and neighborhoods for 30 years!

Thank you for sharing in this fulfilled dream for many families!
Ashley Ambros, a hard-working, single mom with two children, is about to experience a dream come true. She and her two children are so excited about moving into their new home in Bristol, Tennessee. Their home was started in August and will be completed this month thanks to the many volunteers who participated in this project.
This is a milestone event for the Ambros family as well as the Holston Habitat for Humanity family. This is the 226th new home built since 1985 and the 261st family served by our affiliate.
Thanks to the generosity of thousands of donors like you, the Ambros family is now building and buying their home!
 As we celebrate our 30th year of service, your donor support has fulfilled the homeownership dreams of the Ambros’ and 260 other homeowners. Hundreds of children now experience the joy of playing safely in their own yards and neighborhoods. And 261 families have gained stability and become contributing members of our community all because of your gifts!
Many more hardworking families are waiting and hoping for the same opportunity; all they need is YOU!
Our entire region benefits from investment in the Habitat for Humanity model for homeownership, a model of partnership, accountability and self-sufficiency. This model offers hard-working, low-income families safe, secure and affordable homes. Homes that they purchase at zero interest mortgages.
Everyone benefits from stable communities, but few would appreciate your generosity more than those families on the threshold of realizing their own unique homecoming!
The keys to their future are, quite literally, in your hands.
Friends and supporters of Holston Habitat for Humanity like you have played a vital role in helping reach our 261-home milestone. Your financial gifts have a deep and lasting impact. Please make a generous gift toward our goal of raising $30,000 in our 30th year.
With full and grateful hearts,
Art & Sally signatures

P.S. Your contribution at this time will be put to work right away. With your help, another single mom will begin her build this month and soon have a safe home for her family!
