Shalanta's Home Dedication

It all begins with a home. Last night, among volunteers and donors, family and friends, Habitat dedicated its 160th home to Shalanta and her three daughters. The evening was the culmination of years of hard work for Shalanta, who began working towards her dream of homeownership long before she was accepted into Habitat's program.

Now, after helping build 7 Habitat homes, including her own, working in our ReStores and taking all of our homeowner financial literacy courses, Shalanta and her girls will have a new home to start 2017 in. Even better? Shalanta's mother was also accepted in our homeownership program and will begin working on her home this Spring.

The girls received a special gift from home sponsor Coca-Cola!

The foundation of Habitat's mission rests in the hands of the volunteers and donors who support it. The sponsors for this home were the Coca-Cola Company and Annunciation Catholic Church, and we couldn't be more thankful for their support.
