Meet Our New Families

 
Ramos-Esquerra Family
Ramos-Esquerra picYeidy and Yovany have tried before to qualify for a mortgage, and have been turned down every time. They worry about not being able to afford a house with enough space for their two sons (12 months and 14 years old). Building their home with Habitat now, they can let go of the financial worries and feel confident that they will have an affordable house. A home where they can feel comfortable and safe.

Davis Family
Davis picNever knowing if her rent is going up or if she will have to move again is a big fear, but building her house with Habitat, Mrs. Davis can now provide a forever, safe home for her three children. The stress of an unsure future is no longer a worry. And her children will be able to play with a neighborhood full of kids. Having a home “will give us a sense of roots that will grow through the years.”

Norville Family
Norville pic“It’s a huge relief to know it’s your home and to know that your children will always have a home.” Theresa has three children – two sons (14 and 8 years old), and a married daughter who lives on her own. In renting a house, Theresa fears the landlord might sell it, or Section 8 housing will be eliminated. With a Habitat home, they will have financial security and permanence, and Theresa believes “It will dramatically change my family’s life in the most positive way.”
