I believe that every single one of us — regardless of who we are or where we come from — deserves a decent life.
Like Dr. King, I believe in a Beloved Community of justice, equal opportunity and love of my fellow human beings.
I want to help build a world that leaves no room for poverty, prejudice or violence.
I pledge to work together with my neighbors, side by side, to create strength, stability and self-reliance for all.
I ask others to join me — it’s up to us to make this a reality.
In July of 2016, single mother of 3, Don Ekanem began her journey with Habitat for Humanity.
She began looking into homeownership since 2016 but was having trouble trying to apply for any of the homes on the market.
“I had been looking into buying a home but could never apply for one due to my credit,” Ekanem said.
We want to thank our faithful and dedicated volunteers who support Habitat during the month of January. On the construction side, 16 volunteers gave a total of 319 hours. This list provides the total number of hours that each volunteer gave during the month of January.
