Many participant families have a story to tell. Below are some of those who were willing to share their struggles and accomplishments in achieving the “American Dream” of owning their own home.
Van Tonder Family
"This is a miracle! We cannot express in words how blessed we feel to be a part of this journey and to have the opportunity of building a brand new house."
"Thank you for giving us the opportunity of a better life. For seeing me more than just the girl that takes out the garbage and that you believe I deserve a helping hand. Thank you. You have made our dream come true. I hope to be able to do the same for someone else someday."
Sarah Carter Lloyd
"We are so grateful for our new home and the Self-Help Housing program. It has been such a blessing for us and an answer to our prayer!"
Scott and Shandi Wyckoff
"We built our first home with Self-Help Homes in 2002. It was an amazing experience that helped us get a beautiful home that we could not have afforded otherwise and provided us with a skillset that we have utilized many times since."
"This experience has been amazing. It's been exciting to see all the houses going up and learning skills we never thought we would have. It really was something that we looked forward to doing each day. We are so excited to actually be able to say we are homeowners, and it's all because of this program."
