Welcome home, Yussuf Family!

Since moving to the United States from Kenya, KhadijaYussuf has worked extremely hard to provide her family with a strong, healthy home.
“My family means everything to me, and the apartment we currently live in is dirty, noisy, and does not have enough space for my kids to play. I knew that it was time to find a more secure place to call home.” says Khadija.
After seeking advice from family and friends, Khadija decided to apply to become a homeowner through Habitat for Humanity’s Homeownership Program and was selected for a brand new five-bedroom home in the Wendell Phillips neighborhood.
For Khadija, home is a place where family can gather to share love, eat, and play games together. Being accepted into Habitat KC’s Homeownership Program will change her family’s life by providing stability, ample space for her kids to play, and a quiet neighborhood all while giving them the freedom to live life the way they want to.
“I am so excited to see women and other individuals in the community come together to build my home. I know this experience will empower my family by providing us with healthy living conditions and a chance to finally look forward to the future.”

I am so excited to see the community come together to build my home.”
