Perla and Jesus Motomochi paid off their Habitat home!
Congratulations to the Motomochi Family for paying off their Habitat home! As many of you remember, Perla and Jesus built their home in Denton as part of Habitat's Homeownership Program in 2006. The home was dedicated and sold to them in June of that year, meaning this hardworking family paid off their mortgage in just 16 years! We are continually amazed by families like these. This family has accomplished something truly incredible, thanks to YOUR support!
Community Spotlight: Citizens Bank
Special thanks to Citizens Bank for sponsoring the future home of the Crawford Family, as well as helping to finish up the interior paint work on the home last Wednesday! The work we do to build high-quality, affordable homes in our community would not be possible without support from local organizations like this.

Now, the whole interior of our current build has a fresh coat of white paint! The kitchen cabinets have also been installed, thanks to our corporate partner, IKEA. Also just this week, the concrete for the driveway and sidewalks for the home have been poured! This house is nearing completion and we are so grateful for all the volunteers, partners, and sponsors making homeownership possible for the Crawford Family.
"Party with a Purpose" Success
Last month, the Greater Denton/Wise County Association of Realtors hosted the second annual "Party with a Purpose," benefitting Habitat for Humanity of Denton County. In the last two years, this event has raised almost $90,000 for the first home in the Habitat Village!

Thank you to the Party with a Purpose committee for all their work in making this event a success! We are also grateful for the many event sponsors: BCI Mechanical, Inc.; Gillean Brothers Roofing, LLC; Ruth's Room; City of Denton; DATCU; and Access Bank Texas. We can't wait for next year!

Looking to double your impact? Thanks to a matching grant from the Hoblitzelle Foundation, every gift to the Habitat Village will be matched up to $50,000! We have already raised over half of the funds needed to meet this match and need your help to reach it. Now is the time to give!
Turn your old car into cash by donating it to Habitat for Humanity. We'll put the proceeds toward affordable housing in YOUR community! Vehicles do not have to be running, but they must be whole and have four inflated tires so they can be moved by our towing operators. If you're looking to support Habitat for Humanity of Denton County, this is a great way to do so.
In almost every grocery store in Denton County, shoppers can swipe a store card to save a little money. What most people don’t know is that you can add Habitat for Humanity of Denton County to your card and a percentage of your purchase goes directly to help build houses. It’s easy, it’s free, and it helps families in need live in decent homes.
