For many children in Detroit, the idea of a safe and secure home is a foreign concept. This was true for Gabby Flores, who moved around a lot during her own childhood. While she faced many challenges in this experience, never having a “family home” also instilled dreams in her of planting her roots and finding financial stability so that she could be the best mom possible for her own young girls.

Gabby took it upon herself to make these dreams a reality. While keeping her eyes on the prize of attaining financial stability, she was able to work her way up to management roles in her professional life. Next, she set her sights on homeownership, and found hope in Habitat Detroit.

Since joining our program in 2022, the entire Flores family have been active participants in our programming: They were always eager and willing to build up sweat equity hours at volunteer builds, participate in events and classes, and develop their own buying power. In just a short time, Gabby was standing in front of their new home with tears in her eyes, imagining where she would put her plants, which rooms her girls would stay in, and how they would continue to build a beautiful and fruitful life in a place they could call their own.

“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.”
