Meet the Future Homeowners
“As parents, we want to give our children the opportunity to breathe fresh air, and run barefoot in the green grass. With our neighbors changing so frequently, we live with anxiety about what will happen next.”
~from the Kibysh application letter
The Kibysh family is tight. How tight? Well, imagine a family of 7 living in a 2-bedroom apartment. Then envision 5 kids, in various grades, having to home-school in this setting. Picture that and you’ll have a good understanding of what it means to be tight like the family Kibysh.
Having won a visa lottery, Davyd and Svitlana emigrated from Ukraine with four kids under the age of 10. Shortly after arriving in the U.S. they welcomed their fifth child.
As a trained mechanic, Davyd was quickly hired by Diesel Power Truck, where he continues to work to this day. While he makes a good living, it still falls short of what is needed to keep up with Asheville’s skyrocketing rent.
The pandemic brought the need for stable housing into sharp focus for the Kibysh family. “It’s been a difficult time for our children. With school conducted online, they all need their own space to study.” Parents and children alike are excited to soon have adequate space for their family.
The Kibysh family’s future home is a 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom single family home in New Heights.
