#112 - Redko Family
When Maksim brought his wife, Alina, to the United States from Ukraine, he knew he needed to provide the best future possible for her and their daughter Evelyn. With a new baby on the way (Stella was born in August 2018), the Redko family needed to upgrade their living quarters so they could live happily and healthily. This led them to apply for Habitat for Humanity's Homeownership program.
The Redko family now owns our 112th home, located at 1745 Chicago Court in Green Bay. Their home was dedicated on February 21, 2019.
I believe that as the head of the family, it is my responsibility to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of my family. Safe, clean, and stable housing is one of those baseline needs that I feel obliged to meet as a father.
#111 - Dewitt Family
For the DeWitt Family, having a space that suited the needs of their family was difficult to find. In need of a living space that is ADA accessible, the family struggled with flights of stairs, lack of space and shortage of handicap parking. This is what led the DeWitt family to apply for Habitat for Humanity's Homeownership Program.
The DeWitt Family owns our 111th home, located on Western Avenue in Green Bay. The home was dedicated October 11, 2018.
I'm so blessed that my handicapped son, Kevin, and I won't have to climb stairs anymore. I plan on making this home as beautiful as I can by planting flowers, trees, and a garden!" - Lisa
#110 - Rein Family
For the Rein Family, more space was a necessity. The homeowner's teenage son and daughter were sharing a bedroom and the family of three was residing in a cramped 2 bedroom apartment. It has always been the family's dream to own a home of their own and have the space they need to grow. This is what led the family to apply for Habitat for Humanity's Homeownership Program.
The Rein Family owns our 110th home on Western Avenue in Green Bay. The home was dedicated on August 23, 2018.
Thank you to Habitat and all the people who have donated to make my dream come true. Without all their help, my dream of owning a home for myself and my two children couldn’t have come true."
#109 - Barrette Family
The Barrette Family's journey to home ownership involved a lot of perseverance. The future homeowner first found out about Habitat's program a few years ago, and unfortunately did not qualify at that time. Not willing to give up on their dream, the family reapplied to the program and was accepted!
The Barrette Family owns our 109th home on Western Avenue in Green Bay. This home was dedicated on July 12, 2018.
We were homeless once, and it was hard to have faith. But we started praying more, and God had our backs. Faith got us to where we are, home. Now I'm excited to face the challenges of homeownership with my faith at the front line." - Liz
