From The Director

Because of your support, Our Towns Habitat for Humanity dedicated three new homes last month. Thanks to you, Shameca and her two children have a new home in Statesville; Gregoria and her three children have a new home in Cornelius; and Nicky and her two sons have a new home in Mooresville.

One of those homes belongs to the family of a 6-year-old girl named Persia. When I asked Persia, “Which room is yours?” Persia answered, “The BIGGEST one!”

Early this May, more than 20 women stood together atop a foundation of concrete block, bricks and plywood with Our Towns Habitat for Humanity homebuyer Alexandria and raised the walls of her new home in Mooresville. They worked together with the help of 15 students from Christ the King High School. By the end of the day, strangers became friends and a permanent solution to breaking the cycle of poverty was established.

They were not alone.

Our Towns Habitat for Humanity values the work by leaders from across the political spectrum to provide high quality affordable housing in our area. The diversity of our organization is our strength.

I have recently received many questions about current political changes and the impact on our organization. For example, people have asked me, “What impact would the cuts in the proposed federal budget have our affiliate?”
