Megan Eirosius and her two young children have been living at her mother’s house. In the crowded home Eirosius shares not only a bedroom but a bed with both her children.

Eirosius is a Certified Nursing Assistant who would like to go back to school to earn her nursing degree. “Living in an affordable home we will have stability and this will reassure me while I go back to school to further my career in nursing and my children will have a home to grow up in.”

When Eirosius found out she was accepted into the Habitat program she was ecstatic! “ My goal is to provide the best life possible for myself and my children. Having this home build is a huge step in that direction.”

“I can’t wait to surprise my children with their own rooms.” Eirosius described Alyana as sweet, artistic and well mannered, and said Zymeer is, “your definition of a little boy, he’s fearless, adventurous and full of energy.”

Homeowner candidates complete a minimum of 350 sweat equity hours throughout their time in the program. “What I’ve enjoyed the most during my sweat equity hours is meeting a lot of welcoming staff and working hands-on with other homeowner candidate who can relate to my situation.”

“Initially I was overwhelmed with all the information that was being given, but what I thought was going to be a scary experience getting out there volunteering turned out to be positive.”

Eirosius is excited to decorate her house, truly making it a home. “I want to give my children a comfortable home to grow up in filled with love and happiness.”
