Our Partner Families

Houston Habitat for Humanity believes everyone deserves a place to call home, and we make homeownership possible by building safe, decent affordable homes for hard-working, low-income families throughout our community. Our Partner Families all have different stories of how they came to Houston Habitat, but they all come with one common goal: to create a better life for themselves and their families.


My goal is to provide for my family to the best of my ability. I want a better life for my children so that they will never endure what I’ve had to. This is why I came to Houston Habitat for help because becoming a homeowner is very important for my family and me. I want to set a good example for my family through homeownership, I want to give them a home. My family and I are willing to work as hard as needed in order to preserve this legacy. I work hard to show my children that hope still exists and that with God all things are possible.


I am a security guard working very hard as a single mother to provide my children with all the tools and resources they need to succeed in life. I’ve turned to Houston Habitat for Humanity to help me with one of the most important necessities that will impact my children’s lives, a warm home. I divorced years ago and had to move in with my family to ensure my children had a roof over their heads. Being a single mother is difficult enough on its own, without having a home of our own it makes it harder to raise my children and secure their future. Through the Homeownership Program that Houston Habitat provides I can equip my children with the necessary tools to live a healthy life. A habitat home will not only improve our current living situation but will also give us hope for a better future.


I am a refugee from Myanmar, who was living with my relatives in Houston. My friend introduced me to Houston Habitat for Humanity. The family’s home where I was staying was too small for six family members living together. I wanted my parents to live with me and needed a house for us to share. Houston Habitat supported and guided me to become a good homeowner and my father and mother will now live with me in the same house.


Raising three teenagers can be challenging living in a two-bedroom apartment. Each child needs their space to study, express themselves, and grow. There were security issues in our area and I often worried about our safety. I work very hard to provide for them and give them a loving environment. I went to Houston Habitat for Humanity for help to provide my family with a home where they can grow and perform academically, to their full potential. I want them to have a stable and safe environment where they can focus on their education and self-growth. I don’t want them to live in fear because of security issues. In our Houston Habitat home, we will all feel safe to live a healthy and happy life.
