These Families and individuals are currently in a partnership with Habitat for Humanity to achieve their dream of homeownership.Throughout their partnership families they will put in 250 "sweat equity" hours on the construction of their home or another Habitat home, and participate in financial curriculum courses.
Adam, Ashlee, and their two children, Aidan and Amarrah, are so thrilled to be our second partner family!
Adam says, “It’s a dream come true to be able to work on our home, as well as other Habitat builds. There is nothing like being a part of the work. Putting a part of me in the home will mean so much. Ashlee has always wanted a garden, and so do I as well. Eating healthier for the family will be so beautiful. I can’t wait to see the smile on my family’s face eating our fresh garden.”
Shelbi, born in Montana has been a Sheridan resident since age 8. She has three sons, Brysn, Lane and Rayden!
Shelbi works as a victim advocate at Advocacy & Resource Center.
"My children and I have talked about having our own home for years, and how that would affect our lives. Now we get to talk about it as a reality, not a just a dream."
Sean is thrilled to be partnered with Habitat for Humanity!
Once he moves into his new home, he is planning on buying his first pet.
Nora and her three children ages 19, 12, and 10, are originally from El Salvador and have now been living in Sheridan for almost two years.
Nora is very excited to have a home that will allow her children to be able to play outside and to have their own rooms.
In a letter recommending Nora for acceptance into the program, a friend stated, "Her willingness to work hard, her devotion to her family, and her bravery and determination to make a difference in the lives of her children are all qualities that will ensure Nora succeeds in her goal of becoming a homeowner."
Tyrel & Stephanie Rauth
The Rauth's are a family of seven currently living in a three-bedroom home.
A Habitat home will provide them with a safe, affordable home that has plenty of room for all five children to play and grow.
The Rauth's say, "This opportunity is amazing and [we're] so glad this small town is able to offer such a program. [We} are so grateful for the Sheridan community and all the helping hands."
Vanessa and her son Jeremiah will be building their home in the outlying community of Ranchester, where they have lived for over ten years.
As a single mom, Vanessa works multiple jobs in order to provide for her family. She says, "I have always wanted to have a home I could call my own for a long time." In their new home, she would have flowers and plants, and have a place for her son and dog to play outside safely.
David Garza has been a single parent for seven years, raising his two children Silvia (18) and David Jr. (12), in a one-bedroom rental.
In such a small space, this family does not have the room to invite friends or guests over, which is important to them.
Soon, the Garzas will be able to have a home of their own where they can finally host gatherings and have rooms to call their own.
The Garza family will be helping to build their home in the Ranchester community.
