The Rogers Family
Hey there! My name is Lindsay Rogers. I am a single mom to two children, Annabella who is 6 and Callum who is 5. My children’s grandpa told me about Habitat and encouraged me to attend an information session to learn more about the program. He told me they help provide affordable homes for families like ours.
We have been in and out of the housing authority and have had to live with family from time to time. At one point we were sleeping in a family members’ living room. I took his advice and I went to the next information session. The information session gave me hope. It was just so amazing to me that there is a place out here that is willing to help people succeed and achieve the goal of becoming a homeowner. I went home that night and filled out my application and submitted it to Habitat the very next day. Unfortunately I was declined due to some credit issues, but I was encouraged to meet with the staff to see how to move forward. I continued to search for ways to make this dream of owning a home a reality for us. I made an appointment with Habitat and was informed that there were only a few things on my credit that were holding me back. After clearing up my credit, I made an appointment with Habitat and shortly after I was approved.
I have loved every minute of my partnership with Habitat and working towards my goal of home ownership. It is hard for me to express in words what this home will mean to me. Being able to provide a home for my kids, that I know is ours, and providing stability means the world to me. It will truly make me feel as though I’ve been a good mom, which is all I strive to do every day. It brings me joy to know that my kids will have their own rooms and a yard to play in! It’s been my dream to do this for them and I feel as though I’ll never be able to thank Habitat enough for what they are helping me achieve for my kids and myself.
