Meet the Future Homeowners

The Suber Family

“Being a homeowner has always been one of my goals in life, and I think that this will be a great opportunity for me and my family”
~ Evita Suber

Evita comes to us as a native of Asheville, NC.  She is the mother of two young women; her youngest at 14 is set to begin high school and her oldest at 18 is working part time for Deerfield Retirement Community. As a single parent, Evita works two jobs to support her family. She has worked full time for Gentiva Home Health since 2009 and for the past nine years she’s also worked part time for Old Navy. As a Habitat homeowner, Evita will be paying roughly $100 less than she pays for her current apartment but, the real benefit will be the improvement to their environment. They are currently living in an apartment where reoccurring black mold is prevalent and a leak in the upstairs bathroom has created an uneven and cracked ceiling in the living room. Moving from their current apartment to a home certified by Green Built NC is a benefit not lost on Evita. And when it was explained to her youngest daughter that this will be their own home she enthusiastically shouted to her mom, “Mom, we can have the whole family over to our house for a cook-out!”

The family’s future 3-bedroom/1.5-bath Habitat house will be built in Habitat’s McKinley neighborhood, a subdivision of 10 houses in Shiloh. Sponsorship for this home is provided by The W&S Foundation, through proceeds from Warren Haynes Presents: The Annual Christmas Jam. The Suber’s house will be known as The 2016 Christmas Jam House and construction will begin on December 6, 2016.

About the Sponsor

For 18 consecutive years, proceeds from WARREN HAYNES PRESENTS: THE ANNUAL CHRISTMAS JAM have benefited Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. THE BENEFIT CONCERT HAS RAISED MORE THAN $2 MILLION FOR OUR AFFILIATE! The money raised helps Habitat construct energy-efficient new houses, as well as purchase and develop land for entire Habitat neighborhoods. The recently completed Hudson Hills subdivision was named Hudson Hills in honor of Warren and Stefani’s son Hudson.

Also, to offset the cost of purchasing and developing a lot, Habitat has sought out sponsors to “Adopt-a-Lot” for $10,000. These are paired with each house. This lot is generously sponsored by Virginia and Drew Litzenberger & Five Fingers Partnership.
