Volunteers and professionals worked alongside former President and First Lady Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter to build the Bearwater community in the greater Uptown area.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis
is building more than houses. On S2:E7 of the On the Ground Podcast, Habitat's Director of Communications & Marketing Jessica Hord and Habitat homeowner Brandi Hunter dive into the organization's mission to craft community in Memphis.
In Uptown alone, Habitat has helped 57 families, including Hunter, purchase energy-efficient homes at affordable rates and helped 100 senior citizens make critical home repairs and modifications so they could stay safely in their homes for many more years.
