I am SO EXCITED! I have a family I did a short sale for last year – we closed right before Christmas. They have really been struggling financially, through no fault of their own.
Recently, I have been working with them and Habitat for Humanity to find a more permanent solution than the crowded apartment where this family of six resides currently.
Today we were presented with the partnership agreement for a brand new Habitat for Humanity home!
That’s right – a new house, that they can help build! It is NOT a free home, but it will be really affordable to them, and it’s going to be wonderful. It will be a four bedroom single family home in the Erin Peterson subdivision in St. Louis (Loudoun County, outside of Middleburg).
I am thrilled. Just thrilled. They should be in their brand new home by Christmas. This is a very deserving family, and it will be their first single family home ever.
So as time goes on, I might be asking if anyone is interested in donating time to help at the construction site, or help fulfill their hours of obligation, or if anyone has a lawn mower for them – things of that nature. I hope many of you will have the means, opportunity and heart to reach out and help this family. This is SO wonderful for them, and I feel so blessed to be part of it.
