​June is National Home Ownership Month

Patty Campbell, VP of Outreach with #HabitatforHumanityHillsboroughCounty shares a story about how collaboration is the key to success.

“Habitat services those who are at or below 80% area median income. The family that earned a place in our program was homeless when I first met them, they worked very hard, performed their sweat equity, did everything required to maintain good standing in our program, and very close to the end, when their home was almost complete, their vehicle broke down, needed thousands of dollars in repairs. Had it not been for Wheels of Success they never would have been able to close their home, they would not be able to get to work, they would not receive an income, they would no longer qualify for the home. We are so pleased to say that this family has been in their home for over a year now, with the help and ability to maintain their income, thanks to the presentation of a van for the family from Wheels of Success.”

This is just one of several families that were able to get into a home because of a partnership with Wheels of Success.
