As the holiday season approaches, our hearts turn to the warmth of home, family, and the spirit of giving. It is during this special time that we come together to celebrate and reflect on the year we’ve had and the families we’ve served. Meet Diana
, a single mom of 10-year-old, Kedian and 4-year-old, Zoe, who works as a lead server at a local restaurant. Diana has always dreamt of a stable place to call home for her children, but the relentless tide of rising rent and home prices threatened to drown her dreams until the day she discovered Habitat for Humanity of Greater Palm Beach County. With a tearful smile, she confides,
"Homeownership as a single parent felt like a faraway dream. But time and time again, God reminded me that nothing is impossible."
Since qualifying for Habitat’s homeownership program, Diana has not only found her future home; she’s discovered a community defined by strength, determination, and shared purpose among her fellow Habitat partner families. She eagerly anticipates the hours she spends on a jobsite building her own home and a brighter future for her children.
For Diana’s children, home means something special, too. Zoe is looking forward to having her own room decorated in pink, and Kedian is excited about having a yard to play in and not having to share a room with his sister anymore.
“I feel like my mom is working very hard for this house and I hope that my mom will get the best” (Kedian, 10)
“I’m proud of mommy and very happy” (Zoe, 4)
While Diana’s journey to becoming a first-time homeowner is nearly complete, for far too many in our community, having a safe, stable and an affordable place to call home remains a distant dream. We invite you to join us in making a real difference in the lives of families like Diana’s so they can experience the joy, security, and comfort of a home of their own.
