Frankie, Laqueshala and family

We are extremely fortunate and thankful to have the opportunity to be future homeowners through Habitat for Humanity. We are a family of six, consisting of myself- Frankie, my wife -Laqueshala and our 4 children: Frankie 10, Roderick 9, Mercedes & Myrna 5. We currently live in a 2 bedroom apartment in which the bedrooms belong to the children and my wife and I use the living room space as our bedroom. As one would imagine, our living condition is definitely crowded and the lack of a family communal space can be straining. Laqueshala and I work very hard to support our family. I am a home improvement contractor, a full-time student at Three Rivers Community College, where I am pursuing a degree in criminal justice, and I also coach youth football in New London. For the past 9 years my wife has been employed by UCP of Eastern CT, where she is the supervisor of the day program for adults with disabilities.

When we met, we were both living in subsidized housing. Since our eldest son was born, we’ve lived in subsidized housing in Groton. Home ownership has been a dream for us for many years and through hard work and the priceless assistance from Habitat for Humanity and the wonderful volunteers that make it all possible, are dreams are soon to become reality.
