Stories of Hope and Home

On December 11, 2023, Jacquelyn Wright could finally turn her faucets on after not having water for almost a month.

Wright has been living in her home for fourteen years. She started having water issues right before the holidays, and in late November her water stopped working completely.

Mrs. Wright lives alone with her dog, Sapphire. Her husband, a Vietnam Veteran, passed away four years ago.

“After he passed, it just seemed like things started falling apart,” she said.

A tree fell on her house, then her roof began leaking, and after that, her water stopped working.

She was at a crisis point.

“I just didn’t know where to turn. Something just said ‘Call Habitat for Humanity’,” Ms. Wright said.

Wicomico Habitat repaired Mrs. Wright’s roof last July, and then repaired her well in December. Both renovations were completed through Habitat’s Critical Home Repair Program.

Since July 1, 2023 Wicomico Habitat has completed twenty-two critical home repairs. There are currently twelve critical home repairs under construction that are expected to be completed in the next six to eight weeks.

In their own words...

"I love Habitat for Humanity, and if I can get them to help me do something else, I'm going to ask”
