This story is from our Habitat Mission Team, and it was too good not to share!
Lisa and Francisco run a tight ship within their home with chore charts and strict schedules. The family also places a lot of importance on homework and education. Because of this sense of responsibility and structure within their household, their children are excelling at school. Lisa and Francisco know that a world of new opportunities is going to open up for their children once they move into their new Habitat home early next year. “Sheridan Square is in such a nicer neighborhood than where we currently live,” shares Lisa. “This is going to be huge for us… huge for our life and our dreams.”
Moving from a 3-bedroom apartment to a 5-bedroom home is going to make a big difference for Lisa and Francisco’s family of eight. “Katrina’s lived in apartments her entire life,” Lisa shares about their oldest daughter. “She’ll have her own bedroom for the first time in her life.”
“Our Habitat home will bring a lot of peace to our household. Having more personal space and privacy will make a big difference.”
“Francisco and I are working hard towards better things for our family – we want to lead by example and teach our kids about credit scores and the importance of building their credit,” shares Lisa. As parents, they want to provide their children with a safe and stable home so that their children can grow into their full potential. “Whatever our kids' dreams are, I want them to go for it 100%. We want our kids to be independent and self-sufficient.”
“This literally is our dream come true!”
