More Information:

The Elon Campus Chapter of Habitat for Humanity is building its 25th house at 1124 Hampton Court. The students will provide the majority of the volunteer labor needed to build the house, serving throughout the school year on Saturday mornings. These students are also raising funds to sponsor the cost of building the house. Your donation will help the students reach their goal of $25,000. 

Cause:

This house will become home to Vilma Sanchez and her 2 daughters. Vilma and her daughters have worked hard to create a life for themselves while living in a one-bedroom apartment. Vilma works in one of the textile mills in Alamance County. Daughter Sharon is a full-time student at Alamance Community College and works at McDonalds. Aside from the space they will enjoy in their new Habitat house, they especially look forward to it being handicap-accessible for daughter, Lindsay. 

Like every prospective homeowner in the Habitat Alamance program, Ms. Sanchez has qualified through a rigorous evaluation to determine her need for decent housing, her ability to pay a 20-year, interest-free mortgage and her willingness to partner with Habitat. She has completed working 100 hours working on other Habitat houses and now is working 100 hours on her own house. She has made a down payment and will pay closing costs when she closes on the mortgage that will be held by Habitat for Humanity of Alamance County. Your donation gives Ms. Sanchez an opportunity to change the life of her family. You are giving her a hand up, not a hand-out.
