After 22 moves, Cassie and her family are finally in their forever home.
From the very first build day, each Habitat home is filled with love as the community comes together to pour support, laughter, and joy into their work. On November 3rd, Cassie and her family accepted the keys to their future surrounded by friends and family.
“I feel settled,” she shared. “I feel relieved. There was so much work and planning that had to happen before this, and now, I’m officially a homeowner!”
Muncie Habitat for Humanity partners with local families, like Cassie’s, who are interested in purchasing a home with a no-profit, no-interest mortgage. Cassie has been working towards her dream of homeownership with Habitat for months – completing education courses, fulfilling hundreds of sweat-equity hours and financially preparing for homeownership.
Each Habitat home is a collaboration of volunteers contributing hundreds of labor hours, visionary donors providing essential funds, and our partner families.
“If anyone is afraid to be a homeowner you should go through Habitat,” she shared. “It’s amazing. Everyone’s hands are involved, and they pour their love and blessings into the house.”
For Cassie, being a homeowner means having the freedom to grow and share the joy of her home with others.
“I’m looking forward to painting, having family dinners and inviting friends and family over,” she said. “This house is ours and I am just so excited to make it feel like home for my family and making it our own.”
