HFHMC has built or renovated well over 50 homes in Montgomery County.
Below are some of our most recently completed projects.
Upper Dublin/North Hills/Glenside
When Patricia first attended HFHMC’s potential-homeowner orientation in June 2011, she was hoping to find a way to relieve the overcrowded conditions in which she and her sons were living and, just perhaps, also realize her dream of homeownership in the process. Little did she know that just over one year later she would do both! Between working full time and caring for her three young children, completing the sweat-equity-hours requirement was not easy, but she managed to do so in less than eight months with determination, grace, and always... that smile. “This is so exciting,” Patricia recently commented. “Thank you so very much.” Habitat completed this new-construction home and sold it to Patricia in August 2012.
When Carla first came across a Habitat flyer asking for volunteers for the Pottstown area, her initial response was, “Wow, an extreme home-makeover in my own backyard! I’m in!” Boy, was she in! Carla not only volunteered, but she also explored homeownership, ultimately becoming a Habitat partner family and completing her sweat-equity in record time. Carla was eager to put hammer and nail and lots of paint to this building she would call home! And for her, as a born and bred Pottstownian — plus one who lived outside the continental United States for a time — realizing her dream of homeownership in Pottstown simply doubled the concept of "coming home." Habitat completed this refurbished home and sold it to Carla in February 2012.
Jae Chon Moon first emigrated from South Korea to the United States in 1987 and received green card in 1990. He took a delivery job with Anna Catanese Flower Shop, and then also began working at Wawa to supplement his income. His motto is “if there is a job to be done, do it, and do it right.” Not surprisingly, Wawa management is extremely happy to have Jae Chon.
Jae Chon put his son Tae Hoon through Drexel University in Philadelphia to study marketing. After graduation, Tae Hoon returned to South Korea to teach English in Seoul, but hopes to return to the United States to pursue a career in marketing.
Jae Chon moved permanently to Norristown in October 2000 and first got in contact with Habitat about three years ago. Selected as a Habitat partner family in January 2010, he completed his required sweat-equity hours in record time. Jae Chon plans to pay it forward, and he was excited to move around the corner into his new home! HFHCM completed this rehab and sold it to Jae Chon in June 2011.
