Wells Fargo House Dedication and Welcome Home to Shade and her son

On Saturday, November 11, Habitat and Wells Fargo were thrilled to welcome Shade and her son Kai to their new home. It’s been a long journey, but Shade has worked very hard – putting in over 500 hours of sweat equity on the job site, taking financial literacy and home ownership classes and getting ready to move into her very first home. We are so excited to see what her and Kai’s future hold.

Thank you to Wells Fargo for being such a wonderful partner and sponsor over the years. During the dedication they announced that Greater Albuquerque Habitat was one of 47 organizations across the country that was awarded a grant to support efforts to provide decent, efficient, affordable homes. We couldn’t make this happen without the support of our generous donors and this community.
