The Leach – Heatherly Family
“Having a Habitat house would answer our prayers and allow us space and an affordable life together.”
~ from Daniel Leach & Betty Heatherly’s application letter
Betty and Daniel (mother and son) are Asheville natives. They are thrilled about the opportunity to own a Habitat for Humanity home. Betty, her daughter Tiffany (age 29), and two granddaughters (ages 7 and 12) currently live in a two-bedroom mobile home that is over 30 years old. Daniel resides temporarily in an apartment building; the complex is now under new ownership and soon will no longer be affordable. The family is delighted about the prospect of moving from a substandard unit and temporary housing to a safe, permanent and affordable Habitat home of their own.
The family’s future 4-bedroom/2-bath house will be built in Habitat’s McKinley neighborhood, a subdivision of 10 Habitat houses in Shiloh. Sponsorship for this home is provided by The W&S Foundation, through proceeds from Warren Haynes Presents: The Annual Christmas Jam.
