As a proud corporate partner of Habitat for Humanity, we believe home is where the heart is and that home is the key to unlocking a happy and healthy future for families. Did you know that nearly 19 million U.S. households spend more than half of their paychecks on housing costs? This can create a huge burden that often requires many families to make difficult choices between their housing, healthcare, education, transportation, and even grocery bills.
O-Cedar® believes in empowering individuals and families to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through homeownership. For the second year in a row, our team participated in Habitat for Humanity’s Home is the Key campaign. Last year, our team worked on a build in Nashville and this year we traveled to Atlanta to build a Habitat home alongside Krushetta’s family .
Meet Krushetta’s Family
Krushetta is a front office administrator for a local Atlanta medical clinic where she has worked for over three years. Besides being a working mom and new homeowner, Krushetta is also working to complete her Certified Medical Assistant curriculum. (Talk about a wonder woman!) In her spare time, Krushetta enjoys watching HGTV and football with her two sons, Kelton, who is in the 7th grade, and Kelvin, who recently completed his GED. (Congratulations Kelvin!) *Krushetta also has a third son, who is currently in the army and stationed in Hawaii. (Thank you so much for your service!)
Krushetta helped a friend build her Habitat home, which is how she initially learned about the program. When asked about the importance of homeownership, Krushetta says the security of homeownership will help her teach her two young sons the pride and responsibility of owning a home. Making a long-term commitment to homeownership takes work and that is something she wants her boys to learn so they are prepared when they each own their own home one day. Krushetta is also happy to have something to pass down to both of her sons. “Our future is bright,” says Krushetta.
