The Marttinen Family

Sophia and her daughter Emma said goodbye to uneven floors and uncomfortable room temperatures when they became our 4th Habitat Homeowners in 2011.

“I feel proud that I put the work and I am going to pay for this - that this is my home and it wasn’t given to me. I earned it because I am working for it.”

"Now only are we going to be richer right now, but in 30 years or 25 years, I have something that Emma will have a headstart in life with," Sophia states, "This is a palace compared to what I thought I'd be in on my own ... This is way beyond my expectations."
