Elizabeth, her husband and their two daughters have been living in a small trailer for years here in Kittitas County. She first heard about Habitat for Humanity from a neighbor in 2007 but didn’t apply for a home until 2010. While that first application didn’t succeed, persistence paid off for Elizabeth. She applied again in 2022 and was excited to be accepted to partner with Kittitas County Habitat for Humanity on her family’s new home in the Stuart Meadows Community.
Elizabeth and her family are looking forward to help build their new home and are excited for the day they can move in. Her two daughters, ages 4 and 12 years old, are looking forward to a new, safer neighborhood, new friends, and a new school district. “I’m happy to have a bigger place to raise my girls,” she adds. With roses being her favorite flower Elizabeth stated, “I love to garden and look forward to having my own space to grow more flowers.”
Elizabeth sees her Habitat home as part of a brighter future for her family. “This home will be a better place for us all. And it will be ours to do what we want with it. We can sell it, leave it to our children or anything else we want.” She says she is forever grateful to Habitat for this opportunity to improve life for her family.
