Marta & her family

Marta has found a path to affordable housing through DuPage Habitat for Humanity

Marta is a Veteran of the US Army Reserves and a mother of two beautiful daughters. Marta and her husband have been living in unsafe conditions and wanted a new life for their two children.

Before they applied to the Habitat Program, they tried to find a home on the open market, but could not find any housing that was affordable for their family size and income. They had begun to lose hope before they finally were connected to DuPage Habitat for Humanity.

They applied for the Habitat for Humanity’s affordable home ownership program to help provide the best life possible for their little girls. They were accepted earlier this year and volunteers now have an opportunity to help them build their home in DuPage County.
