Real estate agents invited to participate in Habitat for Humanity home builds
EXIT Realty Corp. International is excited and proud once again to be a Habitat for Humanity Sponsor. This time, we’re fortunate to help the dreams of home ownership for TWO families come true!
Nashville is the host city for EXIT’s Annual Convention and will once again be the location of our building blitz next month. On October 11th and 12th we will be working on the home of Habitat partner Clara Curtis. Clara grew up in Paducah, Kentucky, and served in the armed forces. She is now a disabled veteran working hard to support her son, Michael, while he pursues a degree from Tennessee State University. Clara is very proud of Michael and his accomplishments and has done a wonderful job raising him. For Clara, being accepted into the Habitat Program is “a real dream come true.” She has wanted to own her own home for many years and says, “Homeownership means the world to me! It means freedom and owning my own space.”
October 20th and 21st is the weekend before EXIT’s convention and the festivities will begin with a team working on the home of Habitat partners Paul and Elizabeth Manyok, parents of three girls; Abigel (4), Margret (1), and Agot (1 month). Paul was one of the Lost Boys of Sudan and is a member of the Lost Boys of Sudan Foundation. He has been the subject of Lost Boy documentaries and other events. Paul sought out homeownership through Habitat so that his wife and children could have a safe place to grow and rest.
