On December 21st, Hartford Habitat celebrated with our homeowners on South Marshall Street in Hartford, a 22 unit development. It was a beautiful ceremony emphasizing the power of community. I truly believe that homeownership is the first step to restoring the family as well as building a sustainable community. There were keys everywhere...on the program, in the doors and key souvenirs for our partners to autograph. Two lifetime memories were created for me personally. I stepped outside to see some of the future homeowners (children) playing inside the playhouse which was tagged with love from our volunteers. Another was the smiling faces of our six homeowners. This is a life changing mission that I am proud to lead with our board members, staff and our partners. Thank you for making 2017 a success...can't wait to see what we do in 2018!
