2014 Thrivent Build/City of Concord House
Evelyn first learned about the Habitat for Humanity homeownership program from a friend at her workplace. The house Evelyn rented had extensive water damage, no working heat and a very high rental rate. So even though Evelyn worked hard at a steady job, she could not make forward financial progress.
Evelyn attended an information session and knew right away that Habitat Cabarrus was her path. She worked diligently to meet her 250 sweat equity hours and moved into her home in September 2014.
Evelyn felt blessed to have her former teacher, Mayor Padgett, speak at her dedication ceremony, while he was quite pleased to see one of his former students’ success. Evelyn says that God is always first in her life. “I thank God for the wonderful people at Habitat for Humanity. May God bless you with all you need in your lives.”
May God continue to bless you too Evelyn.
