Smith, Gambrell & Russell will be putting on their hard hats to work alongside Warren Averett for the Atlanta Habitat for Humanity Buildable Hours Day on June 24th. SGR is proud to help build a house for Ms. Whitaker.
Ms. Whitaker is a family advocate for a non-profit where she focuses on single mothers, helping them find jobs, housing, and other needed resources. She is originally from California, and she moved to Atlanta in 2009 because she received a scholarship to attend Clark Atlanta. She graduated with a degree in criminal justice and then obtained a masters in social work. Ms. Whitaker received many awards in high school and college for track, and she recently completed a half marathon. She is very community focused, and she is already making plans to attend NPU meetings for her new Habitat neighborhood. She also frequently cares for her two young cousins (3 and 2), and may ultimately obtain guardianship of them. Ms. Whitaker will make an outstanding homeowner.
