Stories of Hope and Home

Steven Phillips

Steven came to us with a leaking roof, failed septic system, and soft flooring in the home he had purchased 31 years before. Through the Habitat for Humanity International Partnership with Owens Corning, we were able to replace his roof free of cost. Utilizing other private funding we were able to make the remainder of the repairs. Mr. and Mrs. Phillips are now free to live safely in their home for the remainder of their years, as they had always wished.

As his new roof was going on, Mr. Phillips exclaimed, “What’s going on here is unbelievable, it’s surreal. I am living a dream.”

Steven and his wife are now looking toward a safe and comfortable future, together in their family home.

In their own words...

“What’s going on here is unbelievable, it’s surreal. I am living a dream.”
Mr. Phillips
