Odessa - Dedication Date: April 4, 2017
Askena - Dedication Date: February 27, 2017
Askena is quiet. Though she is a woman of few words one should never underestimate her, because Askena is a Doer.
Askena has a lot of extended family in Cabarrus County. In fact, in 2014 when she applied with Habitat Cabarrus Askena lived with family. She shared an overcrowded 3-bedroom house with eight other people. Askena, her daughter, and her sister shared a single bedroom.
Lucy (Elevation Church Tiny House 2) - Dedication Date: December 13, 2016
Do you remember where you were 8/29/05? Lucy does – vividly. She lived in New Orleans and that’s the date hurricane Katrina hit her city and demolished her home. Lucy had extended family in Cabarrus County and that’s how she ended up in Concord, fleeing only with the possessions she could carry in two suitcases. Lucy moved into a house that had been divided into multiple apartments in Concord. She was happy to find a 350 foot space she could afford.
Maria (Thrivent Build House) - Dedication Date: November 13, 2016
Candis (Collegiate Challenge House) Dedication Date: September 13, 2016
Candis has been an exceptionally determined future homeowner. She entered the program initially in 2014. An unexpected change in her employment removed her from the program for over a year. But Candis believed in the Habitat program and craved the stability home ownership brings. After much perseverance she re-entered the program in 2015.
Julie (Women Build House) - Dedication Date: July 25, 2016
Life has a way of changing. Julie was pretty satisfied with her life. She had successfully raised her children and was living in an affordable two-bedroom apartment. Then life happened and Julie suddenly found herself raising her five (5) granddaughters. Suddenly that two-bedroom apartment was not so comfortable with six people in it.
Coni (City of Concord/Wells Fargo House) - Dedication Date: June 28, 2016
Coni is a hard-working single mother of three. She, her son, and two daughters share a two (2) bedroom apartment. It’s a good thing this family it tight-knit because two bedrooms don’t provide a great amount of privacy. But tight quarters are only part of the reason Coni began the Habitat homeownership program.
Kristina (Builders' Blitz House) - Dedication Date: June 14, 2016
Kristina and her three children live in a small two-bedroom house. The baby shares Kristina’s room and the two other children share a bed in the second room. The quarters are tight for three growing children and their mom. And if space were the only issue, Kristina might never have sought out the homeownership program through Habitat Cabarrus. But for her family, like many low income families, size is only the beginning of the conversation.
