ABOUT THE FAMILY WHO WILL PURCHASE THE HOME: Jolie and her two children have traveled an incredible journey to homeownership. They are refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo. They’ve been in Wichita for a year and a half now. Jolie works full time as a housekeeper at a hotel. The family is very excited to have their own home. Like all our homeowners, Jolie has put in the required sweat equity, taken classes in finances and homeownership, and saved money toward the closing costs.
Wichita Habitat for Humanity is celebrating 30 years of partnering with the Wichita community to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Through homeownership opportunities, hard-working families experience improved education and work opportunities. Learn more at www.wichitahabitat.org.
