Hi, my name is Mark.
I lived in New Orleans most of my life besides after Katrina. I stayed in Texas and Mississippi for a year. I moved back in 2006 and lived with different family and friends, then I decided it was time for me to move on my own. I got my first apartment in 2009. I then heard about New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity and the program, and I decided to see what it was about.
I’m happy I will be able to own my own home and have stability for me and my family. I’m very thankful for this opportunity. If it wasn’t for New Orleans Habitat, I would not have the chance to own my own home.
