Olympia and Brent have been community activists for many years, supporting organizations and groups who offer assistance to marginalized communities. With housing prices and rent steadily increasing, they are legitimately concerned about being priced out of their own neighborhood. Olympia has worked at Scripps Memorial Hospital monitoring pre- and post-intervention heart rhythms for the past 6 years. Brent is a stay-at-home dad and spinal cord injury survivor. He has learned to walk, write, and even drive again through great effort and multiple surgeries. Their new Habitat home will be the first place they’ve ever lived in with accommodations for his disabilities.
According to Olympia, “Owning a home means security for our family. It means hope. Owning a home provides us with a stability that was not certain in our future before. Our commitment to serving the Barrio Logan/Logan Heights community will be intensified and renewed by owning a little piece of it. With this home, we are provided with new opportunities for growth.”
