A Home to Call Their Own


A-Home-to-Call-Their-OwnJessica and her two children returned to Lincoln four years ago after living in North Carolina, Hawaii, and Japan. Upon their homecoming, Jessica was without a car and job while shouldering the responsibility of being the sole provider for her kids. Jessica and her family stayed with her mom in a one bedroom apartment for a few months until she was able to find a job at a medical office, after which she was able to save up enough money to purchase a car and rent a three bedroom house. Slowly but surely, Jessica and her kids were establishing roots back in Lincoln and enjoying being reunified with family and friends.

However, Jessica knew she wanted more for her kids. She wanted a home they could call their own. She wanted her two children to be able to paint the walls in their bedrooms or have the luxury of going out in the back yard to climb their favorite tree.

“I never thought this could become a reality until I heard about NeighborWorks Lincoln. NeighborWorks Lincoln provided me with the information and support I needed to make my dream of homeownership a reality. I would not be where I am today without NeighborWorks. We love our new home.” – Jessica Stanton

“In three years time, Jessica went from being homeless to owning her own home. She has come a long way and she should have a lot to be proud of. I am proud to have worked with Jessica and the many people like her who have such interesting stories to tell as they pursue their goal of homeownership.” – Gary Rumbaugh, Construction ManagerFile
