Retta and Abuye qualified for the home purchase through Habitat for Humanity Prince William County’s home ownership application process in the spring of this year and work to rehab the home began shortly after in May. The family volunteered more than 350 hours of time with Habitat for Humanity, including working on the home, providing lunch for volunteers and taking financial management and homeownership classes.
