Brian Huddleston of Arkansas said of the program, “If it wasn’t for this program, we probably would never be able to afford a house.”
Chuck Phillips, a participant in Arkansas said, “I just never imagined this would ever be possible. It’s a dream come true. It’s the ‘American Dream,’ owning your own property. I love it because being part of the building process, doing the flooring and stuff, I can look back later and say ‘I did that.'”
Angel Hillis, a participant in Missouri, said, “It’s more than I ever thought I would have. This time last year we were living with my mom. Building our home and moving in is a dream come true. It was exciting. I can’t explain it, I lay in bed for two hours thinking ‘I am in my own home.'”
Anna Dominguez, a participant in New Mexico said of her new home, “It’s something that we thought wasn’t going to happen. Thank God it came true.”
