In a community where many of us have never known growing up without a home, the impact of homeownership can be diluted. At Habitat Kent, we’re honored to partner with families who experience the impact of the homeownership process and beyond.
The living situation before many of our homebuyers start the Habitat program is dire. Families are living in cramped apartments or rental units while overpaying for rent and utilities.
“My whole life I’ve been always moving, all the time,” said homebuyer Jasmine. “As a kid, if I didn’t switch schools three times per year then it wasn’t normal to me. I couldn’t make friends or call anywhere home. It was really hard for us. Life was chaotic.”
Each homebuyer story is unique, but each member of the program shows a need for homeownership, ability to pay for a home, and a willingness to partner with Habitat Kent
