Habitat for Huanity of NCCo completes construction of Coopers Run,
Dedicates 7-unit townhouse development in Wilmington
Twelve months later, we now know those families.
Trina and her two children will be residents of Coopers Run, as well as Juliet with her two kids and Laressia and her infant son.
Darresha, a daughter of a Habitat for Humanity homeowner, and her young son will be moving in. So will Ruby with her two children, and James, Paula and their two children.
“We’re consistently humbled and inspired by the personal stories and perseverance of our homeowners,” said Kevin L. Smith, CEO of Habitat NCC. “We see homeowners return to school, develop new confidence and secure better jobs.”
“We learn of improvement in their children’s school performance and about homeowners’ children who want homeownership for themselves,” Smith added. “We see families long robbed of hope believing again in themselves, in others, and in the future. Habitat helps short circuit the cycle of poverty for many of our families.”
It’s the kind of support from our friends and supporters that make it possible for these families to have a safe and decent place to live and we’re grateful for the support of our partners to help us continue this important work.
Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County has been building affordable housing with low-income families since 1986. Since our inception, we have built more than 200 homes in areas throughout New Castle County including the City of Wilmington, Middletown, Newark, New Castle, and St. Georges. As a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, we are among the top three largest affiliates in the Northeast (of over 210 affiliates from DE to Maine) in terms of home construction. Through our unique approach, we help low-income families break the cycle of poverty through the stability and empowerment gained through homeownership.
