Cathi’s contagious energy and captivating smile is evident the minute you meet her. This single-working mother of two and recent college graduate has worked very hard and overcome a lot of adversity in her life to provide a safe and loving environment for her family.
We proudly welcomed Cathi, her 13-year old son Kaleb and 8-year-old daughter Ashley into our First Story family in September, 2015. “It was really exciting and overwhelming and amazing all together,” said Cathi. Her 3 Bed, 2 Bath home marked the 28th home built in partnership with Hayden Homes. “When Hayden gave me the house key, I held it for three hours. I had watched it being built all the way. I had been packing like crazy. But none of it seemed to be real until Hayden gave me the key. I realized, ‘Now I can move in.’ My son was pretty emotional at the dedication. We’re all very grateful. We’ve been through a lot.” I look forward to watching our community grow and seeing my kids playing next door with my neighbor’s kids. I used to think I would wake up and it would all be a dream. But, now I know it is actually a dream come true!”
