Habitat for Humanity

A single mother of five will be surprised with a house full of furnishings when she moves into her Habitat for Humanity home near Downtown Glendale.

Sabrina, a hardworking single mother, became a first-time homeowner, thanks to Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona.

When she arrived at her new home near Downtown Glendale Dec. 15, Sabrina and her five children were surprised with a $5,000 down-payment assistance check from Warrick Dunn Charities and $10,000 worth of furnishings from Aaron’s.

She was expecting an empty home—but found a house full of furnishings.

This was the 186th home celebration nationwide by Warrick Dunn Charities, the former NFL star’s nonprofit organization that identifies single parents across the country and helps them achieve their goal of first-time homeownership as part of the “Homes for the Holidays” program.

Finishing touches, groceries and down-payment assistance were made possible by support from Ryan “Jume” Jumonville.

Sabrina works in a factory to support her five children. Before moving to their Glendale home, they lived in government housing—which had erratic air conditioning, electrical issues and bug infestations.
