Below are quotes from the future homeowners on their gratitude and the impact of owning their own homes:
“How do I explain what getting this home would mean to me and my children? It would mean safety, stability and having a place for freedom and independence. It also says that “you can do anything if you put your mind to it”. Thank you for this opportunity and wonderful journey to homeownership.” ~ Erin Donahue
“Owning a beautiful new home is a dream come true for me and my kids! The boys have always wanted their own bedrooms. Having two bathrooms will be a big deal for us! Also, having a yard and back yard will be wonderful new change. Being a part of this program has been life changing to us. Not only has it taught all of us how to build and maintain a home, but it has brought us closer together as a family. It has strengthened our bonds as father and sons. It also has taught the boys pride not only their home, but their neighborhood, and community.” ~ John Sutton
