Her completion of the Habitat Homebuyer program was celebrated by organization leaders and Rochester Mayor Malik Evans.
“To be able to have a brand new house in this neighborhood is not only good for the homeowner, but also good for our neighborhood. This brings neighborhood stability, but more importantly this allows the new homeowner to create generational wealth,” Mayor Evans said.
