Our 41st Partner Family has paid off their Habitat home!
Congratulations to Omar Sandoval and Maria Morado for paying off their Habitat home in June! This family was the recipient of our 41st home in November 2002. They worked hard to pay their affordable mortgage payments and were able to achieve this goal in less than 20 years. We are proud to partner with this hardworking family!
