Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury, (HFHWM), is a faith-based nonprofit organization that seeks to put God’s love into action by partnering with communities to build affordable housing, inspiring hope, and provide life-changing stability for families through home ownership.
In Williamson County, TN, one of the fastest growing and most affluent areas in the country, there is a significant need for affordable housing, especially among school teachers, healthcare workers, and public service employees. Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury is one of only a few nonprofits in the area meeting this need. Our home ownership program builds strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter and helps families in need achieve the independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
Once qualified, our future homeowners, known as our “partner families,” complete a thorough homeowner education program, which includes a personalized budget coach who works with the family to reduce household debt and increase their savings for future needs. Future homeowners must also work hundreds of “sweat equity” hours, which include building on their home and the homes of others alongside local community volunteers. After completion the home is sold to the family with a zero-interest mortgage, keeping monthly payments affordable. The process is life-changing for the families immediately and for generations to come..
Also, for every home we build here in Middle Tennessee, we tithe overseas to build a home in a developing country. We build in countries like Haiti, Mozambique, and Lesotho where many families have been ravaged by the AIDS epidemic.

H Clark Distillery is creating hand-crafted spirits one small batch at a time. With a passion for quality and craft integrity, we take the finest grains and ingredients and transform them into the ultimate spirits experience. Focusing on quality over quantity, our creations include Tennessee Bourbon, Black & Tan Whiskey. Tennessee Dry Gin, and New Whiskey. We craft 100% of our spirits in the old town Granary in the charming and picturesque town of Thompson’s Station, Tennessee, found in southern Williamson County. In August of 2014, H Clark Distillery became the first legal distillery in Williamson County in over 100 years, and we craft our spirits in the same building local farmers used to house grains before loading them on the railroad for sale generations ago. So it’s only fitting that a distillery is now located in the same old building, using grains to create high quality spirits to share with those in Williamson County and beyond. If you’re in the area, stop by and visit as we rebuilt a once-proud spirits tradition in Williamson County. Click here to learn more about H Clark Distillery.
