Tears of joy over becoming a homeowner

The fifth Habitat house, as part of Habitat’s 25th anniversary multi-build five-house project, was dedicated in Welland last week. Congratulations to our newest homeowner family, Tara and her three sons.

With smiles and tears of joy, Tara's parents handed her the keys to her new home during the home dedication ceremony. "We're very proud of our daughter," said Ted, Tara's father, who put in countless volunteer hours at the build site to help build his daughter's house.

"This will be a fresh start for us, thanks to Habitat," said Tara. "We won't have to worry about moving somewhere else - this will be so much better for my children."

“I can’t be any more happier. This was an awesome experience I had working with Habitat Niagara,” explains Tara. “Everyone who works or volunteers for Habitat are very special people and will always hold a special spot in my heart. I want you to know you have changed my life and the lives of my children and my whole extended family - Thank you again!”
