Welcome home, Rosa!

“A house is just a building. I’ll make it a home for my family!”Rosa Fregoso, Habitat KC homeowner

Rosa Fregoso had given up searching for a home for her family.
“My credit score was not good enough, and I could never make enough money or get approved for a down payment. I really gave up hope on owning a home because I just did not think I would ever be able to afford it.”
But, while accompanying her sister to a Habitat KC homeownership information session in 2019, a brief encounter with Habitat KC’s CEO, Pat Turner, turned her doubts about homeownership into a day that has changed her life.
“My sister found out that she did not qualify for the program, and the CEO turned to me and asked, ‘Do you want to see if you qualify?’ I wasn’t planning on applying, but because she asked, I did, and I was accepted. This is honestly a miracle for me.”
Now, with an affordable mortgage, Rosa has built a safe, stable and secure place for her family to call home for years to come.
Rosa and her family celebrated Christmas in their new home in 2021. Because they now have a space of their own, they were able to adopt a family dog, Sol, something they had wanted for years.
