This home will be for the Katya and Carlos Vargas family. Katya and Carlos currently live in a small one-bedroom apartment with their daughter, Abigail. Through Habitat for Humanity, they have the chance to purchase an affordable home at 0% interest. Team Spirit’s volunteer work to complete the build will allow Katya and Carlos to afford the home and improve their living situation.

“I have always dreamed of having my own home so I can decorate it, keep it clean, grow vegetables, plant a fruit tree in the back yard, and be able to play with my husband and my daughter there,” said Katya.

Team Spirit last completed a Habitat for Humanity home build in 2013.
