Meet the Future Homeowners
“It’s time for my children to have their own space and for me to invest in something that will be beneficial to all of us, and that is a home to call our own.”
~from Shareka Scott’s application letter
As a dedicated hardworking mother of three, Shareka Scott is committed to achieving her goals. Working full time as a lab technician and single parenting three children, did not stop her from going to college and earning two degrees. When Shareka sets her mind on an accomplishment, she gets the job done.
With help from a Section 8 voucher, Shareka was able to secure a decent home for her young children. That home served them well for 10 years, but as her family grew, the need for more space became an issue. While the two little ones were content to share a room for a time, her daughters entrance to “tweendom” brought a new level of urgency to the need for more space.
Shareka set her sights on homeownership and began working on her credit. When she came to Habitat, Shareka, had everything in order. She knew what her family needed and she was going to make it happen!
Shareka has been approved to purchase a 4 bedroom/2 bathroom home in Candler. On Curry Court, she and her neighbors will build a vibrant Habitat community, where kids will be free to grow, and neighbors will help neighbors.
