Habitat For Humanity Of Cleveland's Home Dedication Ceremony Honors Family In Bradley County

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland will celebrate a Home Dedication Ceremony on Thursday in honor of new homeowner, Victor Headrick.

"Victor has been working on completing his 300 sweat equity hours through the Habitat program," officials said.  "He is doing this, while being a single parent and working a full-time job, in order to buy an affordable home for his family.  His home is the 138th Habitat home built in Bradley County and is named the Leaders Build home."

Sponsors for the Leaders Build include: Cleveland Community Foundation, Dr. Walter and Barbara Peterson, Logan-Thompson, P.C., First Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Habitat for Humanity International, Taziki’s Mediterranean Café, Athens Federal Credit Union, Chick-fil-A in Cleveland, Dynamic Group Management, First Tennessee Foundation, Lee University, Law offices of Andrew B. Morgan, Life Care Centers of America, Mayor Gary Davis, Peak Performance, Pinnacle Financial Partners and Senator Mike Bell. 

"For the last nine years, Victor and Ethan, his son, have lived in a tiny 600-square-foot, one-bedroom cramped apartment," officials said.  "They often struggle with having black mold growing in their closets and on the windows. The foundation of the apartment is in need of repair. As a result, windows and doors are hard to open and close."

Victor is very thankful for Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland.  He said, “I think Habitat is an absolute miracle, and I can’t believe I am part of it. Having a solid foundation for my son and I means the world to me.”

The ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. in the Southgate Hills subdivision, 148 Southgate Dr. SW, Cleveland, TN 37364.  Dinner will be provided by Sodexo Dining Services in the open lawn under the tent across the street from Victor’s home. A short program and ribbon cutting will follow the dinner.

For any questions regarding the Home Dedication Ceremony, contact Meta McGuire at 423-476-6947, ext. 312 or mmcguire@habitatofcleveland.org.
