After more than three months of hard work, the newest owners of a Habitat for Humanity house entered their newly completed home for the first time. Earlier this year, our team — along with employees from several other companies — arrived at an empty lot in central Phoenix, armed with hope and hammers. Our mission was to build a home for the Zenagebriel family.
Emishaw and Sara Zenagebriel immigrated to Arizona from Ethiopia in 2012. They and their three children have worked alongside volunteers these past few months to build their home. The Zenagebriel home is the first house completed in Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona’s Women Build program this year.
Women Build empowers women to create strength, stability and independence through housing. The Women Build mission is in line with Freedom Financial Network’s goal to help people of all walks of life build stronger financial futures. The opportunity for a family like the Zenagebriel’s to own a home represents an important part of the path to financial health and wellness.
Working with Habitat Central Arizona has given our employees the chance to collaborate with an organization whose values we share: caring about those we serve, acting with compassion, working with integrity, and striving to improve the lives of everyone we come in contact with. We couldn’t be any prouder of our employees here at Freedom Financial Network who were part of opening the home ownership door for the Zenagebriel’s.
Welcome home, Zenagebriel Family!
