Billy and Tasha's Habitat Story

Billy works 3rd shift as a Line Operator and Tasha faces the daily challenges of being a stay-at-home Mom for Autumn (3) and Gabriel (1). She hopes that when the kids are both old enough to be in school, she'll be able rejoin the workforce to help earn more money for the family.
With their hectic schedule, both Billy and Tasha consider their family time to be very special. The young family attends Eastern Sky Church of God in Conover to maintain and build their love and faith. The kids enjoy watching Sesame Street and other kids' shows, playing with their dog Daisy, and just being with each other. You can feel the love.

Healthy Homes Make Healthy Families
"You feel better when you have something to work for, something that gives you a sense of even more self-worth." - Mandy, Habitat homeowner

She had been living in a basement apartment with mold issues, an unhealthy environment for her and her two sons, 13-year-old Tyler and 15-year-old Kenny, all of whom have asthma.

But breathing easier isn't the only improvement to her family's health that she has noticed.

"I feel like people don't focus on mental health when they think of the word 'health,'" she says.

Before moving into the home, the boys had to share a room. They didn't have their own spaces. They lived "on top of each other," she says.

ReStore Round-Up: Volume 1
By: Julie of the blog Live From Julie's House

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you've probably picked up on the fact that I'm a big fan of the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

If you're not familiar, the Habitat ReStores are not for profit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell building materials, appliances,  furniture and home goods. Sales support the work of Habitat for Humanity. You can donate surplus goods (which keeps them out of the landfill), score awesome deals for your house, PLUS you're supporting the work of a terrific organization. Win, win, and WIN!

Not sure what to do with your ReStore treasures? I've put together a ReStore Round-up of incredible transformations, including a couple of my own favorite projects.
