Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County purchased this property through the NSI First Look program, and it is now home for Dawn and her four children.
Unfortunately, Dawn’s husband left her after years of marriage, and she was also left with massive debt. She and her four children moved in with her mom while she regained full-time employment, paid down her debt, and improved her credit standing.
Habitat for Humanity invested more than $170,000 in renovations, including new windows and exterior doors, new flooring throughout, fresh paint throughout, a fully-renovated kitchen, a fully-renovated powder room, updated electrical system and lighting fixtures, a new HVAC system, and a repaired garage roof.
Dawn was thrilled to have the opportunity to buy an affordable home in the community where she grew up and works, even though her income is at 80% AMI. She completed homebuyer counseling, and she and her oldest son worked together on the home’s renovation; he took great pride in his work and ownership of their new home.
Divorce leaves many families financially broken, but Dawn worked through these issues and is now in a safe, affordable home along with her children.
