If life kept throwing obstacles in your path, would you keep going? Consider Bria’s story, who now anxiously awaits the completion of her Habitat home in Statesville. From being denied for her first Habitat application to pushing through when laid off from her job right after being accepted into Habitat’s New Home Construction program, Bria simply never gave up.
She now works two jobs, including her primary role as an early childhood education teacher at I-Care HeadStart, while attending night classes at Mitchell Community College.
Bria and her five-year-old daughter Kimora look forward to the safety and stability of their new home. Kimora wants a backyard swingset, and mom Bria wants her own toolbag so she can take care of their house using skills she’s learned from her uncle and from Habitat.
