Surrounded by her sons, new homeowner Adrienne recently marked the achievement of her goal to become a first-time homeowner with a Home Celebration.

Adrienne experienced a few bumps along the way to homeownership, including being initially denied by Habitat for Humanity. Through her own hard work, Adrienne reapplied and was accepted into Habitat for Humanity Greater Orlando & Osceola County’s homeownership program in spring 2020.

She and her family moved into their new home in July 2020. For more on Adrienne’s incredible story, please continue reading this blogpost.
