Meet the Future Homeowners
“We want to teach our girls that with strong faith and hard work anything is possible.”
~ from Devin & Maranda’s application letter
Devin & Maranda are both natives of Asheville. They have been searching for affordable housing and stability for years. Both come from divorced households where housing stability wasn’t a primary goal. Frequent moves, shuffling between two households, and being the new kids at school, led to a lack of stability for Devin and Maranda.
After having their own children, housing stability became their primary focus. The area’s over-priced housing market and sky-high rent made the dream of a stable home seem out of reach, but they refused to give up. Devin and Maranda were determined to break the cycle of housing instability they had experienced during childhood.
When another move led to their daughter being the new kid yet again, Devin and Maranda turned to Habitat for help. After driving through the Glenn Bridge neighborhood with their girls, they prayed daily for an opportunity to become homeowners.
By partnering with Habitat, the Barrett family’s dream of having a home to celebrate the holidays, create memories, and a place for their daughters to call home for years to come, is coming true.
