Programs: The Homes for the Holidays (HFTH) program transforms the lives of single-parent families by rewarding hard work and recognizing individuals who are actively improving their lives by achieving first-time home ownership. The desired outcome of HFTH is to give single parents an opportunity to establish a positive home environment where their children can thrive educationally, socially and economically. HFTH rewards single parents who have demonstrated financial independence by pursuing and accomplishing the American Dream of first-time home ownership. Through a closed nomination process with Habitat for Humanity, single parent homebuyers are selected. Aaron's Inc., volunteers and community partners step in to completely furnish each home with appliances, furniture for each room, kitchen supplies, linens, groceries, electronics, books, cleaning products and home decor. Recipients are presented with $5,000 in down-payment assistance and a fully furnished home during a formal presentation at their new residence, helping them lower monthly mortgage payments and alleviate the debt often associated with making a house into a home. The HFTH program transforms the lives of single-parent families and first-time homebuyers by providing the tools to create a stable and happy home.

Our organization has worked with the Warrick Dunn Family Foundation and they are a first-class non-profit doing tremendous work! They have a very specific mission, have built great relationships and reputations in the communities that they serve and are very true to their mission. They have helped countless families and children in the communities they work in. They are the model of how non-profits should be managed!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending a ceremony, celebrating the finished product of months of work to accomplish their mission goals. It was a very motivating day, and an event that brings a lot of positive influence and hope to the communities they serve.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None! Top-notch!
