Jennifer and family

My name is Jennifer and I believe anything is possible. I heard about the Habitat for Humanity program from my mother, Jenny. She has donated time and materials to various Habitat programs over the years. I was attracted to the program because it is an amazing opportunity for a family which would otherwise be unable to afford a home that would suit the needs of their family. The Habitat for Humanity process is an opportunity to strengthen our family and community ties through cooperative work and a shared goal of building a home for our family’s future. My goal for that future is to create a home for my children and myself in which we can build many happy memories.

I am a 36 year old, divorced mother of three boys. … My sons enjoy skateboarding, video games and listening to music. They also love to camp, hike and swim. I am a second year teacher with my Bachelor’s degree and currently teach a combined class of third and fourth graders at the Integrated Day Charter School in Norwich. I am a member of Alpha Chi Honor Society, am a certified cheerleading coach, and participate in school council as well as the retreat advisory board for my school.

I have enjoyed my involvement with Habitat for Humanity immensely. I have made new friends, been awed by the level of commitment from volunteers and workers, have seen the joy of a new homeowner and the sweat of a family working toward that goal. My family qualified for this house because we are currently living in an overcrowded situation and are a one-income family. I believe other families who are similarly qualified are being given an incredible opportunity to change their lives for the better. I am certain that my participation in the Habitat program will continue over the years, and I believe this opportunity to change their lives for the better. I am certain that my participation in the Habitat program will continue over the years and I believe this opportunity will give my friends and family the knowledge of what an amazing program this is. I know this involvement with Habitat will allow my family to not only own a home, but also learn the value of hard work and commitment. Most importantly, I believe this process will strengthen my belief that with faith and perseverance, anything is possible.
