Last year, the Abdi family helped build the three bedroom Peoria home they live in today with some help from Habitat for Humanity of Central Arizona.
Selamawit Abdi, a single mom of two children, wanted to have a home in a safe neighborhood where her children could play and ride their bikes. But she was unable to get loan approval for a home.
So Habitat for Humanity of Central Arizona was able to fill that gap, partially due to funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
