Becky and Ayla's Story
“Without Habitat, we could not afford to purchase a home. Not only are the costs of homes excessively high, but the cost of down payments, closing costs, and all other charges are far above anything we and many others could afford,” said Becky, a 2022 future Habitat homeowner.
For the last ten years, Becky and her granddaughter, Ayla, have lived in apartments and rental homes in Rabun County, making the best of each situation. Ayla, who is special needs, and Becky, who has had several major health issues also, have prayed for their own home–a place they could make their own.
A rising sophomore at Rabun County High in the special needs program, Ayla loves to do arts and crafts projects and is beginning to learn to cook. Becky, who has worked at Home Depot for the past 15 years, loves to entertain friends, her church family, and her four sons. They both love to be outside. Their current living situation doesn’t allow them to easily do any of the things they love.
For years, Becky and Ayla have prayed to God for a home they could call their own. They applied for a Habitat home several years ago, but it went to another family. “That’s okay, Ayla,” Becky said, “God knew that the other family needed it more than we did.”
In 2022, they reapplied and were chosen. “We wanted to cry,” said Becky, “We just said–Thank You, Jesus!” Becky’s face shines as she lists all the advantages their new home will provide: “parking spaces for our company, Ayla can safely walk around outside on level ground, two bathrooms, and so much more square footage!”
You can help make Becky and Ayla’s new home a reality. Rising supply costs have significantly increased the costs of homes here in Rabun County.
In the past three years, the cost to build a Habitat home has risen 40-50%! With your generous support, our goal to raise $100,000 is possible.
Habitat Rabun has a dollar-for-dollar grant this year. That means for every dollar you give, Habitat receives two dollars! Please give generously today so Habitat can make homeownership a reality for more families like Becky and Ayla.
You can support Becky and Ayla’s dream of homeownership in the following way:
Your support of any or all of the above will help Becky and Ayla’s dream come true. At Habitat, we work together to provide hope and homes to our community. So this place we love to call home will be safe and sound for everyone.
Thank you again for your support!
