Don Michael Woods’ beautiful three-bedroom, two-bath home was recently selected as yard of the month for the Lumbee Tribe’s Cheraw Acres subdivision in the Hawkeye community of southern Hoke County. Woods has lived in the home since 2009. He is a 2007 graduate of UNC Pembroke and is now in the graduate program there pursuing a masters degree in public administration. Woods is a social worker for the Hoke County Department of Social Services. Congratulations Mr. Woods on taking pride in your Lumbee tribal home. “I will never forget April 2, 2009. That’s the day I got my home. It made a huge difference in my life. The tribe provided me with a new home. It was my dream to own my own home. They helped me and I’ll forever be grateful for what the Lumbee Tribe did for me. I would encourage others to become educated on the tribe’s housing programs and take advantage of the excellent opportunities available.”
