A photographer based in Nashville, Benjamin Perlin enjoys using film cameras to capture moments. Benjamin “Ben” Perlin is also actively involved with his community as a volunteer with the Tennessee State Veterans Home and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville, an organization that connects individuals and families to quality, affordable housing.

Habitat for Humanity is committed to empowerment and believes that education is an important part of its mission. To that end, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville created a unique program called HomeWORKS that consists of several different classes that teach life skills to homeowners. Partner families complete 70 hours of classroom training and homework through the program.
The HomeWORKS curriculum changes every year, but past highlights include fire prevention, budget decorating, sustainability living, and the legal aspects of homeownership. The program has also covered financial lessons to ensure that participants understand the financial management and budgeting that goes into owning and caring for a home.
