Leonice and family

My name is Leonice. I am a mother of two wonderful boys, Isaiah and Elijah.Isaiah is a 4th grade student. He likes to play soccer and video games, and he’s a big LEGOS fan. Elijah stays home with my mom while I’m at work. He’s very energetic. He loves cars, and he loves playing ball. Isaiah and Elijah are the reasons why I strive to do more in life. I am a customer service representative at United Community & Family Services in Norwich. I went to school to become a dental assistant. I love my job, and I love what I do, and  because I can do both, be at the front desk and be an assistant sometimes. I love to dance, listen to music; I speak four languages.

I found out about Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut through a coworker who is a Habitat Homeowner. After going through the application process, I listened to my voicemail and learned that I was accepted into the program. I was so emotional and happy. I could not believe it.

My hope is to give my children stability, and thanks to Habitat, we are homeowners, and I can finally have a place of my own. Now we don’t have to worry about loud noise on the top floor, people smoking in the hallway, the bathroom leaking, people getting our mail, problems with the stove, not finding parking places, and police in and out of the apartment complex. It’s an unsafe place to live. These are the many issues that we have at the place we rent. Having a house now is a dream come true. Now we are hoping for a better future.

 I’m very happy to be involved in this organization, to learn more and to help others. I look forward to always being a part of Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut. Thank you, Habitat, for this great opportunity.
