Tracey’s desire to give back to the community is something Habitat for Humanity sees in many of its partner families.
Phil Wright, Business Development Manager, Habitat for Humanity Victoria, says a safe and secure home helps partner families in many ways.
“Access to housing is transformative for the whole family” he says. “But is especially so for Josh. Having their own home can bring strength, stability and enormous self-reliance for them as individuals and as a family.
“And because home ownership is so empowering, we see the flow on benefits in terms of educational, social and educational outcomes. We often find families are so grateful they enter a community with a lot of goodwill and they want to get involved and contribute.”
