Future Neighborhood: Chestnut Hills
Ms. Brown is a hardworking, single mother of twin nine year olds Ashley and Anthony. Ms. Brown is visually impaired, but has not let that slow her down. She has worked as a switchboard operator for 21 years at the Virginia Eye Institute and enjoys helping others with their vision needs.
In their free time, the Brown’s enjoy reading, listening to jazz music and playing video games together.
Construction on the Brown’s home began in February of 2017. Currently, Ms. Brown is completing 10 financial and homeownership education classes and 350 hours of “sweat equity” or volunteer time. Once completed, she will purchase her home and pay an affordable, zero percent interest mortgage, making her dream of homeownership, and the stability that it brings, a reality.
Her children cannot wait to move into their beautiful, healthy and safe new home right in time for the new school year!
“I am proud of my determination because I am a winner and do not quit. Owning my own home will mean a sense of security for me and my children.” – Ms. Brown, Future Homeowner
