Habitat Families

Home for the Holidays!

Habitat’s former Board Member and Executive Director celebrate with our most recent homeowner and her twin boys.


It was a very special day when Samantha and her twin 8-year-old boys moved into their beautiful new home. This was the first time that her sons have had their own rooms, which is what they were looking forward to the most. Although they are twins, their personalities are polar opposites.

Moving into her own home has been empowering to Sam as a mother, and she is eager to create new traditions for her family. She is most excited about hosting her extended family for the holidays and creating 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.
