Executive Director of Sandhills Habitat, Elizabeth Cox, Manor Care Chaplain Ken Rahal, and new home buyer Victoria Lopez
get together to discuss the profound impact Habitat for Humanity makes on so many lives. Victoria tells her story about the upcoming dedication of her new home and the path that got her to this point. Her six children, ages 7 – 17 join Victoria on this journey. A featured article, written by Deborah Salomon, and photographs by John Gessner, is running in this month’s edition of Pine Straw Magazine. Elizabeth, Ken & Victoria interact in such a way that it’s obvious to anyone who listens that there is a lot of love, commitment and support far beyond the new construction home that Victoria is purchasing. Elizabeth outlines the qualification and application process and clears up some common misperceptions about what Habitat for Humanity is. Victoria’s heartfelt story and journey make it clear that her profound commitment to her family and her sense of ethics will translate to all her children; and her goodness to everyone she knows.
