Three years ago, Leah was saving to buy a house when a family emergency led to her becoming the permanent guardian for her sister’s three children. In immediate need of a larger space that would allow her to keep the siblings together, she drained her savings to move into her current rental, where she pays roughly half of her income on rent and utilities. Leah never lost sight of her goal of homeownership, but the unexpected strain on her finances has made it difficult. She signed up with Habitat to provide an affordable and permanent home for herself and her nieces and nephew, and is working hard on her sweat equity hours and homeowner education classes.
“A Habitat home is a life-changing opportunity that gives me hope for the future. I have seen how stability has transformed the kids’ ability to flourish academically and this home is going to provide security for them to focus on their goals in high school and college. I hope that someday I will be able to align my career with supporting affordable housing to more residents of Lane County. “
