A very big decision came knocking on Molly’s door when she was just 25 years old.

That’s the year she became foster mom to her cousin’s toddler son, Travis. When it became clear that her cousin’s drug abuse made it impossible to be a fit parent, Molly made the life-changing decision to adopt Travis. And when she decided to buy a home for her new son, she turned to us.

It’s been a couple of years since Molly adopted Travis. He’s an active, happy, outgoing little boy whose outlook for the future is vastly improved because of Molly’s determination to give him the love and stability he needs. Molly’s in the process of becoming a Habitat Saint Louis homebuyer…and all we need to make her dream come true is you.

The math is pretty simple. We can only construct as many houses as we have funding to build. Whether or not Molly gets to build and buy her first home will be determined by the investment we receive from the community – from good friends like you. Your contribution is as much a part of each house we build as every brick, nail and board. Without you, we simply can’t build. Molly’s counting on us…and in turn, we’re counting on you.

It will be such a happy day when Molly signs her mortgage and moves with Travis into her new house! With your help, we can make her dream of homeownership come true sooner rather than later. Any gift you can give today is a tremendous blessing to Molly and all of our partner families who are working hard to purchase an affordable home. Thank you for sharing our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
