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!
