Story

In early 2016 Rockford Area Habitat for Humanity formed a partnership with Guilford High School's Construction Trades faculty and students to do something life changing - build a home for a family in need all while teaching students home construction - from beginning to end. 

The partnership was a win - win; students got to work on a project that prepared them made them career ready and Habitat got the chance to serve another family in need.  

It started with Latara and her family, and over the years Guilford High School students have built homes for Kayla and Justin's family, Salih and Dalal's family, Reshonda and her family and this year they were in the process of building Candi's home...and then Covid hit.  

The house went from 40 students a day to no one overnight.  The walls were in need of their final coat, the floors still need to be laid, the kitchen cabinets needed to be set and after all those things were complete...a family needed to start their new life in their new home.  

Instead, the home sits empty, waiting for volunteers to finish it so that Candi and her family can have a safe, affordable home to call their own.  

We can't let Candi down.  We need to ensure we can finish her home.  We owe her the peace of mind that homeownership brings, and a neighborhood that is safe for her kids to play in.   

Please help us - we need to raise $25,000 to finish Candi's home and we can't do that alone.  Please consider making a donation so that through shelter we can empower Candi and her family.
