On Monday, July 8, there was a great celebration at Habitat Heartland’s administrative offices as we welcomed Jennifer and Jamie (with their son Christopher), Kari (and her daughter Aurea) and Hisham with his mother Shadha into our Homeownership Program. There was a lot of emotion and excitement in the air. It is always a very special occasion at Habitat and a great reminder of why we do what we do. All three of these applicants went through the same selection process outlined on our website. Now that they have demonstrated their eligibility, they will begin the next phase which involves Homeowner Education as well as completing 500 Volunteer Hours before they can move into their new home. Please join us in welcoming our newest partners in our efforts to create a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.
