Anita Snow heard about Habitat’s Homeownership program from a University of Michigan Health System coworker. She never thought she would embark on this journey of homeownership so soon in her life but is glad that she took this leap of faith.
“When opportunity knocks, you answer with a big smile. One thing I do know is that prayer works and God blesses you with what you need right when you need it,” said Anita.
Anita initially wanted to become a homeowner so that she could have something of her own. Before she moved into her Habitat home she was living with her parents, sister, and niece.
“I wanted to be somewhere I could build a future and possibly have something to pass down to my family,” said Anita.
Anita is the middle of five siblings and has three nieces that she adores.
“Having my own home is wonderful because I can finally invite my parents over for dinner and have my favorite little girls over,” said Anita.
Living in Ypsilanti is a much easier commute to work than when she lived in Inkster. She is now working in the community that she lives and is enjoying her new neighborhood.
“I love my neighborhood. It’s quiet and I like my neighbors. I look forward to more years in my home,” said Anita.
Congratulations, Anita, on one year of homeownership!
