Home is the key to more freedom
Ashlee’s biggest motivation is the future of her two children, Joshua and Jada.
“I love being a parent,” she says. “My children make me proud every day.”
In addition to her children, the Habitat house she helped build and the sense of stability it creates for her family also makes her feel a sense of pride.
Joshua and Jada have both decorated their rooms the way they’ve always wanted to — without any restrictions. “They are very excited to have a home they can call their own,” Ashlee says.
One of the things that means the most to her, she says, is how much less she has to worry when they want play outside and gather with other children in the neighborhood.
