Julie and her two daughters, Ashley and Amber, were very excited to be accepted into the Habitat program this year. She first learned about the program through her sister, who owns a Habitat home. Julie works as a customer service representative in the Akron area, and her daughters are very involved at their schools.
During her home visit (one of the steps in the application process), Julie noted: “I have been a renter for a long time and it’s time to become a homeowner.”
The family is most excited about being hands on and getting to actually help build their own home.
