“Habitat for Humanity is a blessing to so many and without this program, I wouldn’t have the opportunity to be a homeowner.”

Artesha Adras is a single mother and nurse for Pinellas County Schools who is on her journey towards a forever home for her family. She attended Southeastern University in Tampa for License Practical Nursing and has been a nurse for six years. She has two children, Trinity-Joy who is 14, and Christian who is 11. Trinity-Joy is an aspiring nail technician who also loves art and DIY projects. Christian is a gamer who loves video games and technology. The loving and happy family loves to spend time together for movie nights, game nights, and other activities where they can stay connected with one another.

The family of three is currently living in an apartment community that has been neglected by management. “We have experienced rodents, plumbing issues, we do not all have a bedroom, and having one bathroom has been challenging as well,” says Artesha. The apartment’s laundry facility is also not reliable, so the family had to purchase their own portable machine and they hang their clothes to dry in the dining room.

Getting accepted into the Habitat for Humanity program left Artesha feeling happy and grateful. “There is a great sense of pride knowing that you are working towards homeownership which can provide stability for years to come.” She is eager to begin her journey and leave a legacy behind for her children.

“I am most looking forward to being able to call my home “MINE”. I am very excited to decorate and paint and make it fit my style and personality.”

Artesha offers this advice to anyone who is considering applying to the Habitat program: “Step out on faith and take the steps to become a homeowner. This program can change your life and only for better, so why not?!” To learn more about how to apply to be a Homeowner Candidate, please check out our Apply Page.

“I imagine my life and future after becoming a Habitat homeowner to be secure and stable. I know that I will have deep sense of pride in knowing that I am building wealth and securing a legacy for my family.”
