Christina Thermil

Christina Thermil works as a medical assistant in the orthopedics field with Baptist Health. She is a mom to a 10-year-old son, Onyx, who loves gaming and has a passion for engineering and math. Together, Christina and her son love to travel and experience new cultures. As a first-generation college graduate, Christina is committed to furthering her education, currently studying to become a radiation therapist. As she works to achieve this dream, she looks forward to being financially independent and having a positive impact on health and wealth. Growing up, Christina’s family faced the challenge of constantly moving from place to place, which instilled in her a desire for stability and a place to call her own. The opportunity to become a Habitat Homeowner presented itself as a chance to break free from this cycle of uncertainty and create a stable foundation for herself and her son. When Christina found out that she had been selected for the Habitat Homeownership Program, she was overwhelmed with happiness and gratitude. As she begins her journey to first-time homeownership, she looks forward to helping build her own home from the ground up. She shares that being actively involved in the construction process will empower her with the knowledge and skills necessary for successful homeownership. This hands-on approach will foster a sense of pride and a deeper connection to the place she will soon call home. “Becoming a Habitat homeowner will be a transformative experience that will profoundly impact my life and the life of my son, Onyx. The stability and security provided by having a safe and permanent home will alleviate the stress and uncertainty that often accompany unstable living situations. It will provide a sense of stability and permanence that will enable us to thrive and focus on our personal and professional goals,” said Christina.

Murphy Family Home Owners - Habitat for Humanity

Rebecca Carter

Rebecca (Becca) Carter is a single mom to a 12-year-old daughter, Briella, and works at a printing company in sales and customer service. In her spare time, she enjoys training her two dogs and painting. Becca’s daughter takes after her in her love of painting and dreams of having her art displayed at a museum one day. Becca, who has always dreamed of becoming a homeowner, had been working for years to be in a position to purchase a home. She learned of Habitat for Humanity through another nonprofit and decided to apply. When the news arrived that Becca and her daughter Briella had been accepted into the Habitat Homeownership Program, Becca was overcome with a sense of disbelief and gratitude. The dream of providing Briella with a place to call home, a sanctuary where memories could flourish, was finally within reach. As Becca works diligently to complete the Habitat Homeownership program requirements, she is also working to achieve a personal goal of moving into her home debt-free. She knows that an affordable home will allow her to save for retirement and Briella’s education. When asked how becoming a Habitat Homeowner will change her life, Becca said “I will be able to start focusing on memories, on the future, instead of focusing on where we are going to live next year and if I can even afford it.” As Becca and Briella embark on this journey, they look forward to the life-changing impact of homeownership. Their new home will be more than bricks and mortar; it will be a place to thrive, to feel safe, and to build a better life.
