Affordable homeownership is the cornerstone of our work, partnering with income-qualified buyers to purchase homes and providing access to special financing tools which make homeownership more accessible.
It’s very hard to have a house here—even when you’re saving. We tried so hard to save; we say we’re not going out, not eating out, just saving for a down payment. But it is never enough. And the landlord is always raising the rent. It is hard. I so appreciate everyone for what you do for my family and for our home.
I just looked online and we went to the meeting. I didn’t think it would be possible. But the staff was very encouraging. It worked out. It was a long process – all of the sweat equity and the loan, the waiting… it was all hard. But it was worth it. Here we are.
I am just happy that I am able to give my kids stability and a future. They’ll know this has been my room since I was two years old or thirteen years old. That’s just a dream come true: The American Dream.
People from my background don’t usually make it to the other side. My son doesn’t really know nothing else besides sharing a room or a small space with me. It will be nice for him to have a place to call home and not be living with friends and family. I thank Habitat for making this dream possible for me.
