My name is Lakeisha Bell. I have 3 beautiful children and they are: Makeria Bell (13 years old); Mariah Bell (10 years old) and Eldon Anderson (8 years old). I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana in the St. Thomas Housing Development. I lived in a house with my mom, sister, brother, grandmother, aunt and few cousins. After growing up in the projects, I have always dreamed of becoming a homeowner. I heard about Habitat for Humanity through friends and my sister (who has a Habitat house). I decided to call and go through the process to see if I was qualified, and I was.
Now, Thanks to the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity I am on my way to becoming a homeowner. I am very thankful for the opportunity of making my DREAM COME TRUE!
