Our Impact

In seeking truly transformed communities, Habitat views bringing people together not only as a way to deliver a product - improved housing - but as an essential process for building hope and belief that healthier communities are achievable and beneficial for all. When we work together, statistics become faces with names, stereotypes are broken, and everyone has the opportunity to both give and receive. Only then is lasting change likely to occur.

Meet Our Families

 

Madison & Wyatt Fowler
105th Lawrence Habitat Homeowner

Madison Fowler and her son Wyatt are ready to leave behind third-floor apartment life and the relentless cycle of renting, especially when affordable and adequate space is nearly impossible to find. As the inaugural homeowner of Lawrence Habitat’s moderate-income housing in Eudora, Madison is ready to establish roots for her family with a yard, a driveway, privacy, and all the benefits homeownership can offer. 

Madison is the sole provider for her family and loves her job as a dental assistant.  She enjoys listening to music, attending concerts, and loves animals of all kinds.  She is already making plans to add a Ball Python to their family to keep company with their two cats, Penelope and Socks. 

Wyatt has been preparing to be a homeowner his whole life, all four years.  He’s fascinated with appliances and all the details about how they work, and loves to do chores, especially laundry.  Madison jokes, “He rattles off numbers and parts like he’s worked on air conditioning units forever. He’s going to love being in a home where he can be the #1 repairman on duty.”

By partnering with Lawrence Habitat for Humanity, Madison will not only have adequate space for her family, including a yard and to play in, but she will also gain the long-term benefit of being a homeowner – building equity all on her own. 

When asked what she is most looking forward to about the Habitat process, Madison says, “I’m looking forward to giving back to the community and having an opportunity to share about the Habitat mission.  Building my neighbor’s home as part of my sweat equity is an experience I can’t wait to be a part of.”

We believe that affordable housing is a basic, fundamental right of every single person and that stable shelter represents transformational change for families and our neighborhoods.
