TAMPA – T. Bennett Acuff, an attorney at Hill Ward Henderson, was recently elected to the Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity of Hillsborough County. The mission of Habitat for Humanity of Hillsborough County includes showing love to first-time homebuyers and families by giving them a hand-up, not a handout. Habitat homebuyers most donate 300 “Sweat Equity” hours, to assist with closing costs and qualify to make monthly mortgage payments. Habitat homes are sold to their homeowners at no profit with a no-interest mortgage.
Mr. Acuff is an Associate in the firm’s Construction and Litigation Groups. He represents residential and commercial property owners, developers, general contractors, construction managers, design professionals and subcontractors in all phases of the construction process. In addition to serving on the Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity, Mr. Acuff is also on the Board of Directors for I Matter Too, is a supporter of Compassion International and mentors students at BT Washington Elementary School in Ybor City.
