Imagine you’re 9 years old, and your family is suddenly left with nothing.
Your mom, a caring and longtime healthcare worker, is forced to settle on a small mobile home with countless maintenance problems that are causing unsafe living conditions. There’s no safe area for you or your two siblings to play or even effectively study.
This was Lee’s story.* Despite Lee’s strong and hardworking mother doing all she could do, their stressful environment resulted in Lee facing learning challenges and falling seriously behind in school.
But now, because of you, Lee, his big brother and his little sister are starting their third school year in a safe and secure home. Lee’s mom is excited and relieved that his grades and school performance have dramatically improved. And because Habitat kids gain more confidence and pursue higher education, Lee’s big brother is starting college as a pre-med student!
Thank you for creating a path for Lee, his siblings, and so many other children to pursue greater possibilities.
