MEET THE WOMEN BUILD PARTNER FAMILIES

Baker Family

'Roshel Baker was born and raised in Delray Beach, Florida along with five of her siblings. She is a single mom of three, Justin (30), Nathaniel (22), and Natalya (18) who is attending college. She is also a proud grandmother to a 2 year old grandson. As a pharmacy technician at Costco and CVS, Roshel works – and has always worked - two jobs to maintain raising a family on her own. While her hard work and perseverance paid the bills, it cost her precious times with children and family over the years. After learning about Habitat from a family member, Roshel decided to apply for the Homeownership Program to build a better life. As she worked through the program requirements, at times she felt not deserving of this opportunity and that the day when she became a homeowner would never come. But everything changed when she received a call from Habitat that a lot in Delray Beach became available. The groundbreaking for Roshel’s future home marks the start for a brighter future. Roshel will be able to lay down roots and build a strong foundation in the very place she was born and raised; and with the stability and affordability that a Habitat home provides, she will no longer have to work two jobs to pay for housing.

“A Habitat home will allow me to have a do-over and regain all those lost times with my children. My grandson will be able to grow up in completely different circumstances and have better opportunities in life. That is all I want, and I cannot wait to become a homeowner.”
