Sheila Sanders will finally realize her dream
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Sheila Sanders will finally realize her dream of having a stable life without struggling, to grow as a family and have the ability to pursue whatever she sets her mind to do.
On Saturday, May 30 at 10 a.m., Sheila will become Habitat for Humanity’s newest family partners with the dedication of their new home at 630 Altura Drive in Port St. John.
Sheila’s new home was built by Women Build, a volunteer team of women builders from Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County.
Financial support for the home was provided in part by MSF (State of Florida Mortgage Settlement Funds), Bank of America and Ron Jon Surf Shop.
“Becoming a homeowner has always been my dream,” said Sanders who will be living in the home with her two daughters.
“My girls have never had their own rooms and we’ve never had a yard to call our own.”
Diane Koenig, Executive Director of Habitat said, “Sheila has worked hard to successfully complete our program and we are thrilled to see her achieve her goal.”
The public is invited to attend and join the celebration for the Sanders family.
