“We will have a better quality of life” – Meet Future Homeowners Jen and Jackie
Jan. 10, 2017
Jen and Jackie and their three children are very excited to finally have a home to call their own when they purchase their Habitat home later this year. Jen works as a telecommunications technician to provide financially for their family as Jackie raises their two daughters and son, ages 5 to 12.
Jen and Jackie are struggling in their current home where the landlord has left water damage, a leaky sewer line, and a large hole in the front yard unattended. Despite these major problems, they still spend a large amount of their take home pay on rent and are especially vulnerable to rent hikes with a month-to-month lease.
“This home will provide us with financial stability that will help us provide for our children,” shares Jen, “We will have a better quality of life and we’re very excited to have a place to call our own!”
As a family, they’re all looking forward to having more rooms and personal space. Even beyond the house itself, Jen and Jackie are looking forward to being a part of the Habitat homeowner community. “We’re looking forward to living in a diverse neighborhood with more children for our kids to make friends with.”
