Meet the Homeowner
“We want a house which will be safe.”
-From Serghei Buzulan’s application letter
In 2017, Serghei Buzulan, along with his mother and father, left their home country of Moldova to start anew in the United States. After settling in Asheville, Serghei began working for Mills Manufacturing where he helps make parachutes. However, even with full-time work, the rising rent and duty to support his parents made it difficult to afford a place where they felt safe. Serghei especially hoped to be able to find a home where his mother would not have to struggle to get up the stairs and around the house.
Luckily, good news travels fast. While living in Asheville, Serghei became acquainted with several Habitat Homeowners who described their experience in the homeownership program as “a blessing.” These friends encouraged Serghei to apply and helped him feel ready and able to find a forever home for his family.
New Heights is a multi-generational neighborhood that is designed to support people in all stages of life, making it the perfect fit for this family. Serghei and his family are ready and excited to move into a safe, affordable home that accommodates all of their needs. They will be able to put down roots, so they can grow in prosperity and age with safety and dignity.
