Zhelle and Edward Baker were lost. Drug addiction and unalterable external circumstances left them in poor housing conditions. These conditions impacted their family by being unable to thrive and barley survive. The Bakers began to make positive changes in their lives to alter their poor living conditions. These decisions included applying for homeownership at Habitat for Humanity of Kent County. Unfortunately, the Bakers were denied from the program because their total income was too large. Yet they continued to press on in hopes of a better future. Then it happened. Edward Baker had a stroke and was unable to work. How could Zhelle provide for their family and find a stable and safe place to live? They decided to apply for homeownership with Habitat Kent again and were accepted. But the Baker's unstoppable determination would be needed throughout the build process and into homeownership. Discover the rest of the Baker's journey in the video above as we congratulate them as the 2014 Homeowners of the Year.
