Future Women Build 2024 homeowner
Working a full-time job, raising two boys as a single mom and taking care of her fully disabled mother is a constant balancing act for Melissa.
Unaffordable rent leaves little wiggle room for unexpected things. Currently, she’s spending 37% of her gross income on housing expenses, meaning she’s cost-burdened.
“To own and know that you’re going to have the stability of being able to afford it, is huge,” Melissa said.
Melissa is partnering with Habitat for the 2024 Women Build campaign to build a home with an affordable mortgage that will give her the self-reliance she needs.
