Partner Family

Kacy Johnson is a mother of two young boys and is currently a partner family in our six-home construction project. Below she talks about how Helena Habitat has helped her family:

“My partnership with Habitat started with almost no knowledge on my part of what this organization does for people. I was always under the impression that Habitat gave down-on-their-luck people a free house. My own journey with Habitat started as innocently as someone offering me the chance to better my situation for my family. Over time, Habitat has given me more than an opportunity. Habitat has given me skills I never would have acquired elsewhere, courage to do things I never thought possible, a community within my neighbors, Habitat construction staff, and partner families that I know will stand beside me as I will them, and a sense of self-worth that I was lacking. Habitat has not only invested in me, but also given my family the opportunity to invest in ourselves. This home, our home, means so much to my family. It’s a home that I have literally put blood, sweat, and tears into, it’s a home that my two young boys are already calling theirs, a home that never would have been possible for a single mother of two to attain on her own. This home, and what Habitat has given us, is more than I can put into words.” -Kacy Johnson, Partner Family 2019-2020
