What Does it Mean to Have Control Over Your Own Home?

The closer we get to having our first home ready, the more excited we get to meet our new family! Applications have already been pouring in. One question on the applications was this: what does it mean to you to have control over your own home?

Here are some responses:

Not having to worry about the people around us complaining because our kids are playing. Not having to worry about the children being stabbed at the playground. (Witnessed it at our apartment)."

"Freedom and security."

"It would be somewhere affordable, long term and would give me pride of ownership. A place where I could adapt it to support my child with special needs."

"Being able to put a hole in the wall to hang my things up. Paint them. Change anything I would like to change."

"I can create a healthy living space that works for me -- no one to tell me what to do."

"Feeling safe, able to make choices for myself, and near my school “Whitworth”."

"Who can come, who can go, take pride in your yard. Upkeep."

"To have the freedom to be fully independent."

"To be able to make improvements & fix things."

"I’d like to put up a playground."

"I don’t have to talk to people I don’t want to talk to."

"Everything ❣️"
