Wednesday, August 9th at 9:00 am, the Roldan-Lozano Family will realize the American Dream when they open the door to their new home for the first time. Edwin Roldan and his wife, Yanitza Lozano, came to the U.S. from Puerto Rico in 2015 with their three children. They faced several hardships, including not knowing where to live when they arrived. Over the last few years, they have been living in a trailer. Spanish is their primary language, and they have been able to move through Habitat's homeownership program through hard work and assistance from an interpreter.

Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County and West Pasco Counties
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco Counties has served over 800 homeowner partners since 1985. Volunteers and future homeowners construct the homes, which are sold at no profit and financed with a zero-interest loan. Habitat homeowner candidates earn 30 to 80 percent of the area median income. Candidates must demonstrate the need for adequate shelter; the ability to pay back a zero-interest loan and the willingness to partner with Habitat to complete a robust homebuyer education curriculum and invest 350 to 450 “sweat equity” hours. Mortgage monies are used to build even more homes, making each donation to Habitat a perpetual legacy to the community. Habitat believes that homeownership contributes to family stability, leading, in turn, to community stability. Additionally, the affiliate raises funds through their ReStores; home improvement outlets where donated household and building items are sold to the public.
