2016 December

Home for the Holidays!

Thursday, December 15, 2016, was a very special day as we held the dedication ceremony for our newest home completed. Samantha and her twin 8-year-old boys will be moving into their beautiful new home in time to celebrate Christmas. This will be the first time that her sons will have their own rooms, which is what they are looking forward to the most. Although they are twins, their personalities are polar opposites.

Moving into her own home is empowering to Sam as a mother, and she is eager to create new traditions for her family. She is most excited to host her extended family for Thanksgiving and create a tradition that her sons will enjoy into adulthood.

When asked about her experience with Habitat and being involved at the build site, Sam explains, “Some people might see this as a hand out, but it’s not. I’ve worked hard on my home and will be paying a mortgage.” She continues, “It’s been great to work on my own home. I’m now more confident about taking care of it.” Her hard work has even become a source of pride for her boys, who love telling people that their mom is helping to build their home.


Thank you to all our sponsors who made this holiday dream come true!
