"OWNING A HOUSE IS A LIFE GAME-CHANGER..."
Hope For Homeownership
Habitat for Humanity-DeKalb welcomed a new family to their home on Ravenwood Lane in DeKalb County. The family was blessed with an extra special gift of being chosen for THE GMC Longest Yard Sale Challenge.
"Owning a house is a life game-changer. We were very thankful to be the chosen affiliate this year for the challenge as well. A group of talented and thrifty designers decorated the entire home with found yard sale treasures using ideas garnered from interviewing the family. Their efforts were truly amazing!" said Moumini.
Moumini and Mireille came to America from the Ivory Coast (Cote d’Ivoire), West Africa. Moumini and Mireille have two children a daughter, aged 11 and a son, aged one. Moumini and Mireille’s dream is to give their children a chance to acquire a good education and become valuable people in society. They want to raise their children in a stable environment where they have plenty of space to impact their development and their well-being positively.
Hope For Seniors & Veterans
"I've lived in Atlanta since 1996 with a dream to homeownership. Twenty years later, Habitat for Humanity - Dekalb, through its partnership with Decatur Cooperative Ministry, made it happen. Owning my home has made a profound difference in my life. I can now save money for the future."
