Angela is a hard-working, stable mother of a 16 year old daughter and a 12 year old son. While we try not to share confidential information, one of the reasons a family is chosen to become a Habitat partner is need. Angela’s family lives in a tiny 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom garage apartment. The daughter has the bedroom. The mother and son sleep on a futon in the living room. Due to gaping windows and improperly installed ac window units, there are problems with water and bugs getting in. Angela is currently working towards a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting through University of Phoenix’s online program. She anticipates completing the program in March 2011. Angela has been volunteering with us since October and her 12 year old son volunteers afternoons at a local program to help earn the family’s sweat equity. Her daughter babysits the son when Angela works at our build site.
