Prospective Homeowner, Lovie Gray, was introduced to HFHNCC through a close friend but was hesitant to apply, afraid she wasn’t the right fit as a Habitat homeowner. Lovie’s fear of having her Habitat application rejected caused her to remain in an apartment that had mold and other severe housing hazards.
Every Habitat Homeownership Program participant is required to complete sweat equity hours at the construction site or the ReStore and take financial literacy classes. Lovie was proactive in working to improve her credit before applying for the program which included keeping a journal to track all her spending.
