Anita and her three children, Paris, Jared, and Jade became our third Habitat Homeowners in 2008.

The family lived in several rental homes before applying for a Habitat Home.

"I just went from house to house," Annita said, "Every year it seemed like I was moving."

Annita volunteered an estimated 700 hours before moving into her Habitat Home, doing everything from installing hardwood and ceramic flooring to painting and installing doors in her 1,100-square-foot home.
