Rebecca (Becky), is a single mother with three children, two of whom, a son and a daughter (the oldest is out on her own), live at home with her.
Becky is the first in her family to go to college and achieve a four-year degree. She has worked full-time to support her family for the last 20 years, and in 2010, her marriage ended in divorce. Times have been hard for Becky and her children and the divorce came with the loss of the family home. With faith, Becky started a new career at the Community Foundation of Greater Flint and began collaborating with Genesee County Habitat for Humanity. Today, she is working towards the realization of owning a home and finding the security and stability of home once again.
This year we need your help to make the dream of homeownership a reality for one of our Habitat Homeownership Partners, Rebecca. Donate to our Art Van Charity Challenge Campaign and/or sign-up a team to volunteer with Genesee County Habitat for Humanity!
The Art Van Charity Challenge
Genesee County Habitat for Humanity will be participating in the Art Van Charity Challenge, from April 4th through the 25th. The Art Van Charity Challenge is a CrowdRise peer-to-peer fundraising initiative sponsored by Art Van, where the top raising nonprofit organizations win matching funds from Art Van – up to $100,000. Funds raised through the Art Van Charity Challenge will be used to complete Becky’s house.
Genesee County Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit Christian housing ministry that works to build a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
