The Hensley Family
“I would like to raise my children in a safe and family-friendly neighborhood.”
~ Cynthia Hensley (future Habitat homeowner)
Cynthia (“Cindy”) Hensley has lived in Asheville since 1989 and is thrilled about the opportunity to own a Habitat for Humanity home. She is delighted about the prospect of moving from a substandard rental unit in public housing to a safe, permanent and affordable home of her own. She is the mother of two children, ages 12 and 14.
Currently, the Hensley family lives in an aging apartment that has limited accessibility for Cindy and her children. In addition, the area has recently seen an increase in criminal activity and she is concerned about her family’s safety.
