In Their Own Words: The Simms Family on their New Habitat for Humanity Home

“We want to thank MEDA’s Housing Opportunities team from the bottom of our hearts for helping our family achieve this unforgettable accomplishment of becoming first-time homebuyers. We can’t believe it’s true, and are still in shock that our dreams have become a reality and that we finally have a home to call our own.

“Never could our family have imagined that, in our lifetime, we’d be able to provide our family real security and comfort.

“Our lives have been changed forever since this moment, and we still are in disbelief and continue to pinch ourselves and say that we must wake up from this dream state and deal with reality. Words cannot express our emotions and gratitude for all of the effort, time, patience, dedication, determination and guidance that has been given to us by all of you at MEDA in making this unimaginable opportunity a possibility.

“We truly thank you from not only the bottom of our hearts, but from every ounce of our being, and will never forget this moment. You have all had a tremendous impact on our lives and will always be with us.”
