When Fidelia heard about Habitat through Willow Creek Community church she did not hesitate to apply. She has always wanted to provide a safer environment for her family. As a single mother of three it has always been a dream to own her own home.
Last Christmas right before she was approved to be a Habitat homeowner Fidelia asked her teenage daughter what she wanted for Christmas. She responded “Mom, I want a house.” Fiedelia is overjoyed to be able to make her daughter’s dream come true. Her daughter is old enough to help on site and has been alongside her mom every step of the way. Fedelia’s young sons have not seen the house yet, but are equally excited to move in.
Every day on site is a new learning experience. Fidelia says the process is even more exciting because she gets to work alongside her daughter. When the family moves in they look forward to hosting gatherings of family and friends. Fidelia also plans on telling all her friends about Habitat and the joy she has received to be a part of the process.
