Have you ever felt helpless? How about hopeless? Jessica felt both not too long ago. Here is her story.
Jessica and her three children traveled to Connecticut last summer (July 2015) to visit family. Shortly after their arrival, Jessica received a phone call from her husband who was at home in Oklahoma. He told her that he was divorcing her and that he had already sent her and the children’s belongings to a family member in Connecticut. Jessica felt helpless - all she had was the little travel money she had saved for their trip. Jessica and her children were offered temporary shelter, a closed-in porch, at the home of a family member. This porch continues to serve as their living quarters.

One of our greatest challenges is finding homes to rehab or property to build a home for the many eligible families that apply to become homeowners. Habitat for Humanity of Eastern CT’s goal of eliminating substandard housing works hand-in-hand with the ordinances of local municipalities. We impact the community where we build or rehab by turning a vacant, blighted property into additional tax dollars for the municipality as well as increase the local property values. The additional income can be used to improve education infrastructure and recreation in a community.
