The 4th Annual NWV Habitat Build-a-Thon is set for
August 1 & 2 and 8 & 9, 2014! Register now to change the life of a hardworking family today!
Alma Torres and her two boys currently live in subsidized housing in an apartment that has continual electric issues in the kitchen despite repeated attempts by maintenance to fix it. The source of heat is ineffective, previous roof leaks are evident in the bedrooms, and the back door does not remain closed causing cold air to come in and exacerbate the existing heating problem.
Alma is a single mom who made the decision to go back to school so that she could secure a better job to support her children. Her efforts have paid off, and she now has a great job with Silverton Health. With stable employment, the next logical step for her was seeking stable, affordable and safe housing for her family...which led her to NWV Habitat. When we break ground on her house this summer her family will become our 42nd local build. We are excited to be a part of Alma's homeownership dream.
