We will be building in partnership with Brittney Chandler in order to build a home for her and her son. Brittney was born and raised in Birmingham, Al, where she graduated from Huffman High and attended Jefferson State Community College. She has worked for Regions Bank for the past 10 years, but hopes to return to school one day to be a nurse because it has always been a passion of hers. She loves helping others and encouraging people and feels that this career path would be a good fit. When not at work, Brittney enjoys spending time with her infant son,Braylon. He loves sing alongs, talking baby talk, and blowing bubbles. They attend Church of the Highlands.
Brittney is excited to have a place for them to call home together. She says it is "a dream come true to own my own home." When asked what she would say to those making home ownership possible, she responded, "Thank you for your support and dedication to families such as mine. IT really makes a difference and the help of giving back to others really gives mankind hope fora better future.. And I thank you so much."
