Our Towns Habitat for Humanity gave me the opportunity to start over and feel like I am living again...

Habitat has been a delightful experience. Before I signed up for Habitat, I really didn’t think I would ever become a homeowner. The process has given me hope and a place that I am going to enjoy to go home to after a long day of work. To go home and be at peace. I am given the opportunity to start over, to feel like I am living again. This is giving me the opportunity to show my children that your dreams can come true. I am able to have something of my own to pass down to my kids and their kids. I have to give all the praises to God because He made all of this possible. I thank God for putting programs like Habitat in place to give individuals like myself the opportunity to own their own home. I am so thankful for everything that has been given to me. I enjoyed giving back to other families and seeing the smiles upon their faces as we all worked together. This is an experience that I will never forget.

I am thankful for Ingersoll Rand for being generous and giving back to habitat. Everyone that came out was superb to work with. Everyone wanted to pitch in and help in every way possible. They were just great. I can't thank Habitat and Ingersoll Rand enough for all that was done.
