Meet our Partner Families
Meghan is a single mom raising two young boys, who works full-time as an Executive Assistant in Victoria. Although she has worked hard her whole life to get where she is today, only having one income to support her boys and provide for their needs has been tough. Homeownership wasn't even a dream of hers because she knew it would never become a reality. After reading an article in the local newspaper about the new Habitat for Humanity build, on a whim she decided to fill out the online questionnaire, assuming that, like all the other assistance programs she had reached out to over the years, she would never qualify. That whim lead to a newly founded partnership with Habitat, which she is so excited and extremely thankful for.
