Disabled since 2005, 39-year-old Mia Robinson had been unable to work. She and her 12-year-old son, Jayden, have lived in a rental home which had plumbing and electrical problems. These included: low water pressure leaving them without water several times a week and getting shocked when they’d turn off light switches. They had also gone without water for as much as 24 hours, and without electricity for as long as a week.

“It would be a dream come true to have a home of our own that we can afford,” said Mia. Thanks to Habitat for Humanity, her prayers were answered when they built her and her son a two-bedroom two-bath home. Mia had completed more than 250 hours of sweat equity and moved into her new home in the fall of 2018.
