Noelkys Rodriguez and her two children now have a simple, decent home thanks to renovations she and volunteers were able to make to a property donated to the Hazleton Area Fuller Center for Housing in Pennsylvania, a former Habitat for Humanity affiliate.
“I’m so proud,” board member Ted Sherrock told the Standard-Speaker newspaper at Sunday’s dedication. “She is going to realize the American Dream that may not otherwise have the opportunity.”
Not only did Rodriguez put in more than 150 hours of sweat equity on the house herself, but she has served as a volunteer and board member with the Hazleton housing group for the past four years.
