Chantel and her children are excited about their journey towards a new home. The children, two boys, ages 8 and 6, and a girl, age 5, ask their mother about the house every time she goes to work for Habitat. Chantel says, “They are so excited for this new opportunity.” Chantel is currently working on her sweat equity by putting in hours at the Rock Hill ReStore and volunteering on other Habitat homes under construction. She learned about Habitat from a friend and expressed her appreciation for the process saying, “They make the process really easy for you. It’s amazing.” Chantel says she has enjoyed making connections in the community and is happy to see Habitat employees and volunteers around Fort Mill during her job as a mail carrier.
Chantel loves working with Habitat and says, “They’re not asking for anything unreasonable and it’s a great opportunity to help others.” She looks forward to the rest of her journey and is motivated by the idea of having a home to call her own for her children.
