Dennard Difference Efforts "Build a Place to Call Home"

After learning of a family in need of a living situation in the city of Cheviot, Bengals cornerback Darqueze Dennard purchased, rehabbed and furnished a home through his foundation Dennard Difference. The project called Build a Place to Call Home, took nearly 18 months to complete and incorporated more than 20 companies and organizations throughout the Cincinnati area. The house was revealed to the Yisrael family on Wednesday, when the nine children and their father said "move that truck" and toured room by room the place they would now call home.

Thanks to Bengals cornerback Darqueze Dennard's foundation the "Dennard Difference," multiple organizations worked together over the course of 18 months to build a home for a family with nine children in Cheviot, Ohio.

A few of Dennard's teammates were on site for the big reveal to show support for the difference Dennard is making in the community. Here's a special shoutout from Dre Kirkpatrick and KeiVarae Russell.
