Southern Heritage Bank is a sponsor this year for the Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland’s Women Build.

"This event provides the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities," officials said. "This $1,000 sponsorship will help build a home and bring hope to one more family in Bradley County. Over the last four years, Southern Heritage Bank has donated $5,500 to sponsor Women Build teams."

Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity Cleveland Tammy Johnson, says, “Southern Heritage Bank has volunteered and sponsored Habitat homes in Bradley County since 2016. Not only do they help with vital funding, but Brooke Littell, AVP of Commercial Lending also serves on Habitat’s board of directors. They have made a lasting impact on many families. It’s heart-warming to see what a team of kind, giving and supportive people can do.”

Ms. Littell adds, “Southern Heritage Bank is proud to partner with Habitat to be a small part of not only building a home, but a new life for someone in our community. I believe home ownership is an important part of personal stability, which is the foundation for healthy communities.”

Ms. Littell has also led and served on many home builds, alongside a "powerhouse of women" build teams.

"Amanda Moore, a single mother of three beautiful children, Jakia Young, Johnathan Walker Jr. and Amontay Walker, will be the new homeowner for the Women Build home this year," officials said. "The family has been living in a home with a poor foundation and electrical issues. Their neighborhood also feels unsafe, with cops having to continually visit their street. Ms. Moore just wants her kids to have the opportunity to grow up in a safe environment."

“I want things to be better for my kids, and to show them that it’s possible to do anything,” says Ms. Moore.

"A glimmer of hope has come upon the family through this generous donation to help fund their new home," officials said. "Ms. Moore is working hard to gain sweat equity hours as she gets one step closer to her dream home."
