Over many years we have watched as our homeowners lives have changed and their families have thrived. Many find that because their mortgage payments are considerably less than the rent they were paying, they can now afford to save money for school and other opportunities.
This summer we are thrilled to have Daniel working with us in the ReStore and on many of our home repair projects. He came to us in June because he needed to complete 180 volunteer service hours to fulfill requirements for his internship program at William Penn University in Iowa. The truly exciting part of this particular story is that Daniel’s life changed when his mother and father were accepted to participate in Habitat’s home-ownership program in the City of Tulare.
