About Yesenia Plancarte
Yesenia Plancarte was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Yesenia spent her childhood moving in and out of apartments and duplexes, which created a great deal of instability in her life. After facing trouble in her personal life, she turned to community service and spent five years volunteering with Bay Area Habitat at our ReStore facility without knowing that she would eventually become a homeowner through our program. We are pleased to have Yesenia as a family partner and are proud of the obstacles she’s overcome to get here today.

Bay Area Habitat strives to eliminate substandard housing and to make poverty housing a matter of conscience and action. It is with the support of our sponsors and volunteers that we can provide safe, stable, and affordable homeownership opportunities in Galveston, Northern Brazoria, and Southeast Harris counties.
