Stories: Meet Our Families

Through shelter, we empower. Meet some of the families who have partnered with Habitat to build or improve the places they call home.

April's Story

What is your “why”? For April, a future Habitat homebuyer, this is an easy question. Her “why” is her children. April is a mother of three, and she has been working the past few months on her journey to homeownership through Memphis Habitat. 

In her spare time, April is a homebody and loves to express her creativity. One of her greatest passions is working with natural hair and teaching her children to love their hair. April currently works in the mental healthcare field and is working on returning to school to pursue a degree in psychology. 

While April was nervous to begin the homebuying process, a close mentor motivated her to push forward toward her goal of owning a home. She wants to pay that advice forward, so April encourages others to invest in themselves and make the step toward improving their lives through homeownership. 

Support families like April today!

April told us recently she had another goal of getting her eldest daughter her own room by the age of 13. Well, her daughter turned 13 in September, and in just a few months, April will accomplish this goal and so much more. 

April wants her children to see that she can do anything she puts her mind to, so that they grow up reaching for their goals. As a child, April lived in unstable housing, separated from some of her siblings. She wants to own a home so that her children will have a place to grow up in and build memories together. Having a home with an affordable mortgage will give April and her family a solid foundation to plan and pursue even more goals in their future.

At Memphis Habitat, families like April partner with us to build strength, stability, self-reliance, and shelter. In the current housing market, we’re seeing rent costs skyrocket as well as home prices rising and being sold in just days, if not hours. The opportunity to buy a decent, affordable home is so important, and supporters like you help make that possible. You can support local families like April by donating to Memphis Habitat today.
