Realty Austin is calling on the community to join their pledge in uplifting the Herrera family. Donations to the 9th Annual Realty Austin Habitat for Humanity Home Build will provide the supplies needed to build a safe place for Linda and her two granddaughters.
Born in Honduras and moving to Austin 20 years ago, Linda is a motivated, hardworking bilingual Head Start teacher that is so looking forward to her Habitat home! After battling adversity for many years, experiencing homelessness and domestic abuse, Linda is now a succeeding, thriving as a caregiver for her two granddaughters, and looking forward to the next phase of her life. She now lives in a subsidized apartment from LifeWorks, but it is too small for herself and her granddaughters, aged 3 and 13. She knows that a home of her own is the best option for lifelong stability without the stress of yearly rent increases and moves, but didn’t think it was within her means until she discovered Austin Habitat.
Linda applied to the program in November 2018 and has moved quickly, again showing her commitment to entering this new chapter in her life. She likes meeting new people onsite and is excited to be developing construction skills. Linda has never had her own room, so she’s looking forward to having her own space, and she knows her 13-year-old granddaughter is too. She also can’t wait to plant vegetables and sunflowers in her own garden!
Linda says that having her own home will completely change her life, and she wants to thank Realty Austin for making this wonderful change happen!
