We asked Selena to tell us what being a homeowner means to her. This is what she said!
“Growing up in New Orleans, LA life was never easy. But with the strength of God, my challenges became obstacles that I overcame. Experiencing Katrina and Rita, I know what it is like to have no home at all. So applying for Habitat was the best and only way I saw fit to becoming a homeowner. Being a home owner means a stable living for my daughter and myself. It is the foundation to what we call life. It is a place to live our lives with privacy and peace. Habitat for Humanity is giving me and my family a safe living environment that is violence and drug free. So I would like to thank all of you who are involved in making our lives, as Habitat Partners, better.”
Selena and her daughter Kay will soon be calling Mable Street home!
