The Habitat for Humanity of Kitsap County share their resources to help the community, including the youngest to have a better life. It is a great community partner with the Bremerton Backpack Brigade ( a weekend feeding program for children). The Habitat provide a team of volunteers who help pack and deliver backpacks for elementary children at six schools in the community who face food insecurity. The Habitat Store also serves as a drop-off location for nonperishable food for the community. it is the only location that is available 6 days a week for donations. The Community is stronger because of relations that Habitat for Humanity has created through it volunteers and staff.
From the time I walked in to Habitat for Humanity of Kitsap County in February of 2013, until the day I finally got the call that I had been accepted in to the program in January of 2015, the Habitat staff has been nothing but helpful. My journey was not an easy one. I had hurdles to cross and when I thought I couldn't jump the next hurdle, Habitat was there with suggestions of places I could go to seek help to get over that next bump in the road. I couldn't have done it if I hadn't felt like they were there backing me up the whole way. They wanted me to be successful and to be part of their program. That was so encouraging to me; if they weren't going to give up, then neither could I! I am ecstatic to say that my six children and I will be moving in to our own home some time in the new year and we will be safe and surrounded by the wonderful families we have had the pleasure of getting to know while we work together to build our neighborhood at Harris Court. Thank you Habitat of Kitsap County and keep up the amazing work!! Below is a picture of our future home!
