Help Make Chevelle’s Dream of Homeownership A Reality – Make a Donation Before May 1st!

Posted on by HabitatAdmin

Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity still needs your help to raise enough money to begin building our next home before May 1st!

Read Chevelle’s story below and make a donation to help get her family into their new, safe, affordable home as soon as possible.

Chevelle’s Story

Chevelle is a single mother of six children ranging in age from 4 to 18.  While Chevelle was growing up, her family lived in Section 8 housing and continually moved because of evictions, making her home life unstable and unsafe.

Currently she and her children are living in a small, three bedroom rental home with lots of safety hazards.  Each summer the bathroom smells of sewage and Chevelle is concerned the condition of the home could affect the health of her children. Chevelle wants nothing more than to provide her own children with the safety and stability she never had as a child.

Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity is helping her achieve that stability for her children.  Once her home is built,  Chevelle will move into a safe, affordable, brand new home where she will pay a 0% interest mortgage, saving her a lot of money.  She is currently gaining the tools she needs to thrive as a homeowner by attending eight mandatory homeownership and financial literacy courses and is diligently completing 350 hours of “sweat equity” volunteering at our ReStore and helping to build her own home.

Without generous donations from people like you, families like Chevelle’s would never be able to experience the joy of owning their own home.


A donation from you to Richmond Habitat of $25, $50, or $100 (or more) will help make Chevelle’s dream possible!  Won’t you help today?
