This home is being constructed in partnership with Falan Anderson and her two children. Ms. Anderson is a Birmingham native and the proud mom of Kaleah, who attends Fairfield High Preparatory School and KaDerious, who attends C.J. Donald Elementary School. Kaleah is an honor student and member of the national Junior Beta Club. KaDerious is a wonderful math student who received a medal for obtaining the highest math score in his grade.
Ms. Anderson attended Ensley High School and Alabama State University. She holds associate degrees from Lawson State Community College in Building Construction and Business Administration. She was named Lawson’s Miss Building Construction in 2014 and was inducted into Phi Beta Lambda and Kappa Beta Delta honor societies respectively. She plans to continue her education and complete undergraduate and graduate degrees in business.
Ms. Anderson believes owning a home will add to her family’s sense of freedom, security and stability. She is looking forward to watching her children enjoy their home and neighborhood without the threat of violence or crime. She and her family are grateful to the supporters and volunteers building her home. Her family attends Faith Chapel Christian Center in Birmingham.
