Habitat for Humanity of Dane County hosted a double home dedication in Sun Prairie on Wednesday, Sept. 18. Each soon-to-be Habitat homeowner, Rebecca and Angela, were excited about owning their own homes and putting down roots in the Sun Prairie community.
For Rebecca and her two sons, 11-year-old Damian and eight-year-old Alvin, owning a home was important to have that sense of security, stability and something to call their own.
“I want to keep pushing my family forward, and I believe our next step is owning a home,” Rebecca said, “It is important to teach my children the value of family and having a home through hard work and dedication.”
Soon-to-be homeowner Angela is a dental assistant in Sun Prairie and mom to six-year-old daughter Averie. Angela’s dream is put down roots and have the security that owning a home brings.
“I want so much to give my daughter the life she deserves. I want to give my daughter a home she can grow up in and always know she can come back to, like my parents did for me,” Angela said, “That is why I am fighting so hard to make that dream come true for my daughter and myself.”
The homes, sponsored by TASC (Total Administrative Services Corporation), marked the 290th and 291st Habitat homes build in Dane County and the 39th and 40th homes built in Sun Prairie. An additional nine homes are planned over the course of the next two years in the Vandenburg Heights neighborhood.
During the home building process, Rebecca and Angela spent hundreds of hours on the construction site building their homes. Prior to breaking ground on both homes, staff from TASC built both home frames in the parking lot of Warner Park in partnership with the United Way Seasons of Caring Kick-Off event. The frames were then moved to their permanent locations in Sun Prairie.
