Martiza and family

My name is Maritza. I am a mother of three. My daughters are Estrella, who is 14 years old, Elisa, who is 12 years old, and my son Elic, who is 5 years old. The reason why I am so happy to get a Habitat home is because my kids need a better and safe place to call home. Being a mother with low income makes it impossible to purchase a home because no one will give you a mortgage. So getting a Habitat home is the only way I could purchase a home for my children and myself. We have lived in the projects for eleven years because it is all that I could afford. It has been a struggle because it’s not a safe or healthy environment for my children. Getting this house means that where there is a will, there is a way. - Written at the beginning of the process with Habitat for Humanity of Southeastern Connecticut
