We are so excited for a home of our own and so grateful for the chance to work hard to make this dream come true.

After the kidnapping of one of our daughters and a violent armed robbery, my family and I left Haiti searching for a better life in the United States. We took a leap of faith that we would be safe and have opportunity here.

Moving to a new country was very hard. My ex-husband became abusive, irresponsible and eventually left us, leaving the weight of providing for our three children on my shoulders. Determined to make a way for us, I applied to be a partner family.

After so much struggle and hard work, we were excited to move into our new home in Harmony Point this fall. I am so grateful to everyone at Habitat of Greater Newark for giving me this chance to provide the safe, stable home my children need to succeed.

Seasons Greetings,

Marie
