The Flores Family is excited to make their dream of homeownership a reality

Habitat for Humanity Detroit is proud to welcome The Flores family to its list of homeowners.  Their home dedication will take place on Wednesday, April 26th at 4 pm at 3926 Haverhill, Detroit, MI 48224.

Growing up, Gabby Flores moved around a lot, never really having a “family home.” She had to take a responsible role early in her life to help support her family. This experience instilled dreams of financial stability, planting home roots, and being the best mom she could be for her daughters.

Starting with financial stability, she worked her way up to a management position in her professional life.  With that accomplished, she set her sights on homeownership and planting roots through a permanent home.

“Upon viewing the house on Haverhill, we could see the overwhelming emotion in Gabby as she pointed out where she would put her plants, what rooms her girls would be in, and how she would hang stockings on the fireplace mantle during the holidays,” says Stephanie Osterland, Habitat Detroit’s Executive Director.

Since partnering with Habitat Detroit in May 2022, the entire Flores family has taken an active role, from completing sweat equity hours as volunteers at builds, to attending events & classes, and working diligently to increase their buying power.

“Habitat Detroit has changed my life by helping me become a homeowner and allowing me to play a role in the homeownership journey for other Habitat families,” says Flores. “Most importantly my daughters see that with hard work and dedication they too can become homeowners.”

The Habitat Detroit Homeownership program was established to help build wealth, assets, and opportunities for the next generation of Detroit families. The Flores family is the latest example of the program in action.

Flores continued, “I am so thankful for Habitat and all of the wonderful volunteers who have helped on this journey and cannot wait to enjoy many years of happiness with my family in our home.”

“We look forward to welcoming our newest Homeowners to the Habitat for Humanity Detroit family,” says Osterland.
