Lori Gano, owner of Heritage Homes & Designs spent five years volunteering with the local Knoxville Habitat for Humanity. From teaching the construction classes and volunteering in the field to leading in the annual multi-house blitz and women-builds, Lori and Heritage Homes & Designs support Habitat for Humanity's successful model of creating a positive system for community residents to build a home, a future, and a personal motivation to succeed. Consider supporting the thoughtful and life-changing work Habitat for Humanity continues to do in our community. 

 

A HAND UP FOR WOMEN

A wonderful Knoxville organization that exists to help women move from dependency to self-sufficiency through weekly classes that focus on life skills and job readiness. 

Interested in helping women by offering a hand up rather than a hand out?
