Esther and her husband have five wonderful children. 

Before becoming Habitat homeowners Esther and her family were living in an apartment that was becoming increasingly unaffordable. In addition to the rising prices of rent, they were also faced with living in an area filled with individuals involved in drugs and violence. Esther was concerned about the potential consequences of her kids living in this dangerous area.

Esther was determined to move her family from the negative environment they were into a more peaceful one. Unfortunately, their credit was not high enough to qualify for a traditional home loan. Esther was desperate for a change.

  • 74% of homeowners are better able to save money since purchasing their Habitat home.
  • More than 4 in 5 homeowners say they feel more secure financially since becoming a Habitat homeowner.

Esther heard about Habitat for Humanity of Hall County from a Bill Coates, a fellow member of FBC Gainesville.  Esther said about Bill, “He motivated and mentored me from the beginning to the end of the application process and beyond.”

 “My family and I are blessed! My husband and I feel more responsible and positive about our family's future. We praise the Lord every single day for this opportunity. We have our own house! A bright future is in view with a happier childhood for our children.”
