NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 29, 2019) – Greater Nashville REALTORS® celebrated the completion of its 23rd annual home build for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville May 23. The recipient of this year’s build by the association is Shamseldein Osman and Fihaa Mohammed.
Shamseldein and Fihaa are from Sudan and lived in Egypt before they immigrated to the U.S. in 2016 for more security and equality. They both say they love Nashville because of the “great people” and ability to find work. A Habitat for Humanity home to them is a better way to care for their family and reduce their housing costs. “It will raise our standard of living,” Fihaa explains. “A home will increase our freedom and security,” Shamseldein says. “It will help us build long‐term wealth and give our children a chance for academic achievement.”
“Greater Nashville REALTORS® is an advocate for promoting and providing homeownership opportunities to all who wish to be homeowners,” said Andrew Terrell, Greater Nashville REALTORS® president.
“It is truly an honor to support our homeowners Shamseldein and Fihaa this year and all the families we have supported over the past 23 years Greater Nashville REALTORS® has partnered with Habitat for Humanity. We look forward to continuing this partnership in the future to make homeownership available to everyone,” added Terrell.
This home marks the association’s 23rd build for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville. Affordable housing is a priority for Greater Nashville REALTORS®, who is also deeply engaged in the current conversation about creating more affordable units within Nashville.
Earlier this month, the association launched its 20 for 20 Campaign to raise funds for their 24th home build that will take place in 2020. If every member of the association gives $20, it will fund the 2020 build.
Greater Nashville REALTORS® will dedicate its 23rd Habitat for Humanity Home on Thursday, May 30, at noon.
