Home Federal Bank Supports Habitat for Humanity



2020 marked Home Federal Bank’s 30th consecutive year as a covenant partner (house sponsor) with Knoxville Habitat for Humanity. Covenant partners provide a substantial amount of  the funding and volunteerism to build with a family that has earned 500 hours of “sweat equity” to build or purchase a home through the Knoxville Habitat program. Home Federal Bank is Knoxville Habitat’s longest serving local corporate partner with Habitat for Humanity in all of Tennessee and the 2019 recipient of Habitat Tennessee’s State Impact Awards for “Outstanding Local Community Leader.” Over the past 30 years, the community-focused hometown bank has provided over 3,360 volunteers and at least 13,440 volunteer hours. Several Knoxville Habitat families that have built in partnership with Home Federal Bank have now celebrated paying off their mortgages.
