Houston Habitat for Humanity believes everyone deserves a place to call home, and we make homeownership possible by building safe, decent affordable homes for hard-working, low-income families throughout our community. Our Partner Families all have different stories of how they came to Houston Habitat, but they all come with one common goal: to create a better life for themselves and their families.
Stories of Hope and Dedication
Ms. San Miguel is a single mother of a 3 year old son; she had been leasing a property in the Fifth Ward Area of Houston for more than 5 years. Ms. San Miguel lived in a very unsafe home with heavy machine equipment in her front yard making it difficult for her child to play outside without getting hurt. She promised herself and her son that she would become a home owner to have a safe environment for her child.
Ms. San Miguel became a proud homeowner in March, 2015
Eric and Micheline Gasongo envisioned having a home to call their own, a home where their four children could have bedrooms to call their own. The Gasonogo family lived in a small two bedroom apartment before becoming a Houston Habitat Partner Family, and with three boys and a little girl on the way, the cramped apartment left little room for the growing family.
Through hard-work and dedication their dreams became a reality in April 2015 when Mr. and Mrs. Gasongo closed on their Habitat Home!
Tiphanie Wilson became a Houston Habitat Family Partner in the hopes of one day owning a home where she and her two children could feel secure. Ms. Wilson’s five year old son, Ken’dell suffers from a form of epilepsy that has left him unable to walk or talk and needed a safe environment where he could comfortably work with his physical therapist.
Ms. Wilson and her children found that safe place in their Habitat Home in April 2015!
