This year RJ Young will partner with the Beasley family to sponsor and build their 5th Habitat home. Employees will meet up every weekend for a little over a month with Chatonya Beasley to build the house from start to finish. Chatonya has worked for Tennessee State University for over 17 years and currently works as a cashier in the Bursar’s office on campus. She is the proud mother of her four year old son, Anthony.  Chatonya’s mother, Bernice, has been a constant in Anthony’s life since he was born and will also live with Chatonya and Anthony in their new Habitat home.
Over the years RJ Young employees have generously volunteered their time to help bring it home for these deserving and hardworking Habitat families:

2003 ~ Gail Horton:

2005 ~ Ymelda Santana:


2007 ~ Ali Almoumineen and Ahlam Jamaludeen:


2009 ~ Cynthia Lanier:

Working on a Habitat home is a rewarding experience. The employees here at RJ Young have been touched by the lives of these families and I encourage you to volunteer with your local Habitat.
