Meet the Future Homeowners

The Leach – Heatherly Family

“Having a Habitat house would answer our prayers and allow us space and an affordable life together.”
~ from Daniel Leach & Betty Heatherly’s application letter

Betty and Daniel (mother and son) are Asheville natives. They are thrilled about the opportunity to own a Habitat for Humanity home. Betty, her daughter Tiffany (age 29), and two granddaughters (ages 7 and 12) currently live in a two-bedroom mobile home that is over 30 years old. Daniel resides temporarily in an apartment building; the complex is now under new ownership and soon will no longer be affordable. The family is delighted about the prospect of moving from a substandard unit and temporary housing to a safe, permanent and affordable Habitat home of their own.

The family’s future 4-bedroom/2-bath house will be built in Habitat’s McKinley neighborhood, a subdivision of 10 Habitat houses in Shiloh. Sponsorship for this home is provided by The W&S Foundation, through proceeds from Warren Haynes Presents: The Annual Christmas Jam.

About the Sponsor

For 18 consecutive years, proceeds from WARREN HAYNES PRESENTS: THE ANNUAL CHRISTMAS JAM have benefited Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. THE BENEFIT CONCERT HAS RAISED MORE THAN $2 MILLION FOR OUR AFFILIATE! The money raised helps Habitat construct energy-efficient new houses, as well as purchase and develop land for entire Habitat neighborhoods. The recently completed Hudson Hills subdivision was named Hudson Hills in honor of Warren and Stefani’s son Hudson.

Also, to offset the cost of purchasing and developing a lot, Habitat has sought out sponsors to “Adopt-a-Lot” for $10,000. These are paired with each house. This lot is generously sponsored by James Ferguson.
