On October 22nd, Morris Habitat for Humanity celebrated 35 years of empowering families through affordable homeownership. One of our first homeowners, Octavia Chavis, spoke at the event and told us how in the mid-1980s, she and her husband, Willie, moved from apartment to apartment with their three young sons. Even though both worked full-time jobs, homeownership was out of their reach. Partnering with Morris Habitat gave them an affordable, secure and stable home to raise their children.
“I am so grateful that Morris Habitat came into our lives,” Octavia said.
And we are so grateful that you – Morris Habitat’s volunteers, donors and supporters – have come into ours! This year has been challenging, but as our thoughts turn to Thanksgiving, we have never been more inspired by and thankful for you.
Your support helps Morris Habitat bring people together -- like Octavia, Willie, and their three sons -- to build homes, communities and hope.
Wishing you a wonderful, safe and blessed Thanksgiving,
BlairBlair Schleicher Wilson
Morris Habitat for Humanity CEO
