Ashley has known about Habitat for Humanity for some time because her sister is also a Habitat homeowner. Now feels like the right time for her to partner with Alachua Habitat and become a homeowner herself!
Ashley, a Certified Nursing Assistant, and her pre-school aged son Ashtyn currently live with her sister’s family in a small house where 3 adults and 3 children live together in a crowded space. Ashley describes the situation as being “not the most comfortable” for her and her son. Ashtyn loves to learn - especially writing his name and identifying colors. He also has an interest in language, recently learning how to count to 10 in Swahili.
Ashley feels that moving into a Habitat home will drastically improve her life and Ashtyn’s. She is most excited about the fact that she’ll have her own space where she can make the rules and decorate rooms for her and her son. She’s also looking forward to having enough space for Ashtyn to have “a space of his own to be himself and have peace of mind”.
