Sophia is a hardworking single mother of four children. Sophia works as a CNA/Home Health Aide and loves spending time with her kids. “Anything to put a smile on their face is just amazing to me”.

Their current living situation is far from ideal. Their home is small and overcrowded, with the three sisters sharing one room.

“Being a single mother, it is very hard to afford a decent house for all my kids. It’s even more of a challenge to find a good neighborhood to raise my kids in. I just want the best for my kids and I know it starts with me and the work I put in for them.”

Wanting a better future for her children, Sophia applied to the Habitat program. When she was accepted, she was ecstatic. “I wanted to tell everyone. I had to thank God because I know if it wasn’t for Him, I wouldn’t have gotten this far. It feels like such an accomplishment.”

Sophia has enjoyed completing her 350 sweat equity hours. “I have learned so much! I’ve learned to paint, lay down sod, put in cabinets; and so much I never knew. I enjoyed the landscaping the most, I love making families yard look great. Nothing has been hard, I enjoy every minute.”

Sophia and her kids are looking forward to making their new house a home together. “Habitat for Humanity is an amazing program, all the sweat and tears are worth every minute. Habitat made my dream come true.”
