Habitat for Humanity @ BUMC
Tarren grew up in Pontiac, MI, in a very loving family. Her dad owned a concrete company and her mom stayed home. She has many fond memories.
Tarren has worked at McDonald’s in Columbia for 6 years where she is a shift manager. She has completed basic shift management and advanced shift management training with McDonald’s and plans to continue training at the local level.
Tarren’s other focus is completing the basic money management steps of Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace class. She is unwavering in her mission of providing Jayden with a safe and secure future. This focused determination led her to the Habitat for Humanity Homeownership Program. Tarren has earned all of the required 420 sweat equity hours by attending budget coaching classes and volunteering in the ReStore.
“There are no words that can express how truly thankful we are for the gift they have given us. It has changed our lives in so many ways. I can never thank them enough.” ~ Tarren Seabolt

Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County
Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County supports over 100 families with affordable housing. And BUMC is one of its largest supporters -- having built 14 homes already! At a time when many churches have had to scale back commitments, we are taking the lead and stepping up to do even more! But, we need your help!
HABITAT QUICK FACTS:
Families PURCHASE homes from Habitat and receive a 0% interest mortgage in exchange for over 400 hours of “sweat equity.” The $70,000 we at BUMC raise and over 2,500 volunteer hours we donate to this ministry make it possible for Habitat to build this home and sell it affordably to the O’Neal’s.
BUMC has built more Habitat homes in Williamson County than any other sponsor. In fact, more than 1 in 10 homes built in the 15-year history of Habitat here in Williamson County has been sponsored by BUMC. This year’s home is being built in the shadow of BUMC’s Trinity Campus, and is the largest Habitat home ever built locally.
Each year at BUMC, it takes over 350 volunteers and approximately 1,200 donors to reach our fundraising and volunteer goals as a Habitat Sponsor. And we’ve been doing this ever since Habitat started here in Williamson County. Habitat has built over 125 homes so far in Williamson County, and will build 13 more this year.
Every Habitat Family saves up $2,000 in closing costs and volunteers over 400 hours of “sweat equity” just to qualify for the Habitat program. Each Habitat Family also attends budget classes, home maintenance classes, and is well-prepared for home ownership. Habitat Families are rarely homeless and never impoverished. The program seeks to serve families with stable jobs and income, who want to be homeowners, but fall just short of qualifying for a conventional mortgage.
