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.

Queen and Dallas' Story

Every child deserves a stable beginning.

Meet Queen and Dallas! If you ran or volunteered at the Bluff City 10K, they may look familiar to you. They were at the finish line with their mom and dad - handing out medals, high-fiving, and thanking runners for putting in 6.2 miles in support of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis.

Their parents bought and moved into a new, affordable Habitat home in the Bearwater Park neighborhoodlast fall. Queen and Dallas now have a place to call home.

“It feels amazing to know that there are people who would love to help you instead of looking down on you. Habitat is really changing lives.” - Deven, Queen and Dallas' mom

Every step Bluff City 10K runners took supported Queen, Dallas and other local children in realizing the joy, comfort and stability that comes with having their own home. The race might be over, but our work continues to serve more families. We are only weeks away from kicking off the 2017 build season, and we need you to get us to the finish line. Every child deserves a stable beginning in a safe and secure home. Your best gift will help Memphis Habitat make it possible for more children to have the peace of mind that only a home can bring.

Everyone deserves a decent, affordable place to live, a place where they can build their future. Every gift makes a difference. Please give today to help put more families on the road to homeownership.
