“When we serve, it is a job. But you would also give your life to make sure that everyone at home can live without fear and worry.” – Carla Jamison
As a US Army Veteran and proud mother of 3 children, Carla is a strong and resilient woman. Having lost her own mother at a young age, Carla has remained determined to provide a safe and loving environment for her children. Despite their efforts, life has not been easy for the Jamison family. Carla’s middle son grew up with a great affection for basketball but was diagnosed with an enlarged heart, forcing him to give up his dream of playing.
Carla Jamison and her children worked with the Veteran community and made her dream of homeownership a reality in November 2018. Carla has since become an integral part of the Habitat Pinellas Veterans Committee.
