“By lending a helping hand to others in the Habitat program you become a blessing by paying it forward.”

Gericka Brown, a single mother raising two children and working a full time job at Baycare Health System as a Patient Access Service Representative, is working towards her forever home. She has a five-year-old daughter named Gabrielle who enjoys reading, crafts, soccer, and helping her mom out with cooking. Gabrielle is very excited to have her own room and to invite friends over for a sleepover. Gericka also just welcomed a newborn baby boy named Onyx into her home this month. “I am so very thankful for this opportunity to be able to provide a safe and stable home for my kids and I, so they will be able to enjoy their own private space with a nurturing and loving environment.”

The Hadley family moved in with Gericka’s grandmother in her three bedroom, two bathroom home. They share one bedroom while her grandmother and aunt occupy the others. “The conditions frequently bring stress upon the household because of limited space and freedom. I try to remain positive and keep the energy afloat to make me and my daughter comfortable, but sometimes it can be challenging trying to raise a child under someone else’s roof with their rules.”

When Gericka was informed that she was accepted into the Habitat program, she was so excited and thankful. “It was a dream come true that I finally have the opportunity to build a stable and positive environment for me and my kids. It was a very emotional moment, and I couldn’t believe it at first.”

“Owning my new home will give me a sense of maturity and responsibility. I will learn new characteristics throughout the journey.” Gericka looks forward to having a sense of pride and ownership and is excited to learn basic home maintenance to allow her to become more independent as a single mom.

“Know that the process is challenging but also know that the habitat volunteers and staff want to see you succeed and as long as you do your part, you will be a homeowner. Most importantly, give thanks, listen, learn, show love, and work hard.”

The Brown Family Home was dedicated on November 10th, 2021 and was sponsored by
