Azaria has wanted nothing more than a stable homelife for her, her partner, and their four children. That dream of stability seemed far away when within days her partner lost his job, they received an eviction notice on their home, and their car caught on fire while taking one of their four sons to daycare. Despite moving in with family and then moving into a two-bedroom apartment, Azaria and her family never lost hope of their dream for stability. Shortly after hearing about a family member’s experience with Habitat, Azaria was quickly encouraged to apply despite feelings of doubt regarding her financial situation and potential to be a homeowner. Much to her surprise, Azaria received a call in January 2021 announcing that she was going to be a homeowner and would finally get the opportunity to bring her family around the dinner table to enjoy a homecooked meal. Habitat NCC, Azaria, and her family celebrated that day in June 2021 when she received the keys to their forever home.
Always finding a way to put others before herself, Sekea has a passion for giving back to her community. She first heard about Habitat through a volunteer opportunity as a high school student and this led to a heart for serving more with Habitat and also with Autism Delaware. As she continued to grow in her service as a volunteer, Sekea started thinking about homeownership but struggled with the idea that she could be a Habitat homeowner. Despite her doubts, she chose to step out of her comfort zone, act on faith, and apply for the homeownership program. In November 2020, Sekea received the news that she would be the final homeowner moving into the Grace Point II project in Middletown. While this opportunity is the stepping stone that she needed to continue to pursue her goals, she intends to pay it forward by helping others find their stepping stone on the path to their dreams.
Originally from Jersey City, Diane came to Delaware about 15 years ago. Leaving the place she once called home led to some trying times. Between frequent moves and even facing homelessness, Diane found a light at the end of the tunnel when she was introduced to Habitat and was accepted into the homeownership program on her first try. However, she began to doubt and worry if her pregnancy would affect her time needed for her sweat equity hours and financial literacy classes. Diane remained faithful and was able to complete her hours (with the help of her now ex-husband’s commitment to the physical work). As she looks back on the last 13 years in her home, Diane attributes this blessing to both Habitat NCC and her faith. She believes this home not only tells her children they will never be homeless, but that it gave her something to fight for and fueled her fire.

“I don’t take having a safe, secure home for granted…for one moment.” Eileen describes herself as coming from a humble background and recalls growing up without the benefit of the lovely home she enjoys today.
Recognizing that Habitat NCC creates lasting change for families, Eileen elected to name Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County as a beneficiary in her traditional IRA.
