2018 UAB Habitat House Build

2018 Habitat Homeowner

Ames Farrell
This year the Benevolent Fund is excited to be building for Ames Farrell. Ames has lived in Birmingham all of his life, graduating with an Advanced Diploma from Shades Mountain Christian High School and attending UAB.  He is self-employed, running “Ames Works” throughout the year.  He specializes in yard work, chores, and basic handyman jobs. When not working, Ames enjoys watching detective shows.  He also enjoys running, generally putting in 6-18 miles each week, depending on his schedule.  He attends Canvas Church in Vestavia.  
 Ames believes owning a home will help him because he will have his own place for the future, be able to give him more room to live and to store his tools, and help him to fulfill a life-long dream.  When asked what he would like to say to those who have helped to make his home possible, he responded, “I believe that it is a greater blessing to give than to receive.  I hope that you can get a double blessing from working with me…Thank you for volunteering."
