We would like you to meet Sarah Pine. Sarah was accepted as Habitat partner family in July of this year and we are thrilled to welcome her and her children into the Habitat family. We know you will adore her as much as we do.

Hi my name is Sarah Pine. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you some of my family’s story. I am a single mother of three amazing children; a daughter Sonnie 16, and two sons Nick 15, Ethan 8. We are currently living in a subsidized apartment complex. It's a nice apartment, but a rough neighborhood where we recently experienced having bed bugs. I have struggled over the past four years to find a safe affordable place for us to live. I have some felonies on my record due to wreckage caused by my past poor choices. This has made it extremely difficult to find a place to live. Today I'm blessed with a life in recovery! By the Grace of God I have 5 years clean and sober and a life worth living. Last year we became homeless and through that time God opened some life changing doors. We got accepted to Seven Hills Homeless Center in the DeNovo permanent supportive housing program. There my case manager suggested that I follow up with the pre-application I had sent into Habitat for Humanity. Our family was accepted as a partner family.
I work for Goodwill Industries of Arkansas as a key holder member of management. I'm working on my education so that I can continue to provide better for our family. I dream big and Habitat for Humanity is a way of making big dreams coming true. I'm honored to be a partner family for the Women Build Project, designed to empower women to get involved in the community.
Please get involved with Habitat for Humanity of Washington County, AR in developing a community where everyone has a better place to live. I never had much stability growing up. As a mother I want my children to have a sense of security and safety in their lives. There are lots of ways you can help my family and other families in the future. I have faith for the future. We walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7
Thank you for making a profound impact on the quality, opportunities, possibilities, and blessings to our lives.
