700th Home Dedication
August 30, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 9:30 am
On Monday, August 30th at 9 AM, Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco Counties will dedicate its 700th safe and affordable home to a local, qualified family.
With the construction of every new home, Habitat Pinellas and West Pasco creates homeownership opportunities for families and individuals with the help of the community volunteers, corporate donors, civic organizations and county officials. The key sponsors of the 700th house, which will become “home” to the Sakers family, were primarily community individuals and family foundations as a result of peer-to-peer fundraising throughout the area.
Aurora Sakers was thrilled when she was accepted into the Habitat homeownership program. Aurora and her teenage daughter, Ash, are the 700th family to partner with Habitat Pinellas and West Pasco Counties. This August, they will become homeowners in Tellor Estates, the affiliate’s largest development to date located in Pinellas Park.
Aurora has worked at local cable wire assembly manufacture, Compulink, for two years. She applied to the program to provide better stability for her daughter. Her daughter, Ash, loves music, reading, writing, and history. “As for me; I’m a hard-working single parent,” says Aurora, “I will work from sun up to sun down and then some, just to make sure Ash has all she needs to be successful. I know my job as a parent is to set my child up for success. Going through the Habitat Homeowner Program with Ash by my side helps her to understand what it takes to be a homeowner. One day she will be able to get there herself. I have no doubt Ash will be successful in all she does.”
