Habitat for Humanity is excited to build two affordable homes
in Cape Porpoise, Maine.
Meet the Cape Porpoise
A note from Derek on behalf of the family:
The moment my wife and I found out Habitat for Humanity was going to build in Cape Porpoise it brought tears to our eyes. I have worked in Kennebunkport for 14 years and we have fallen in love with the town. We couldn't believe there might be a possibility for us to move there.
After 3 tours in the Middle East with the 82nd Airborne Division I honorably discharged from the Army in 2005 and started working in Kennebunkport the following year. Unfortunately settling in the area has always been out of reach for us. My oldest son requires many living space based health considerations that we have not been able to fully accommodate with move in ready conditions. Constantly evolving health complications have caused us to live in fear and need to relocate to different towns and school systems numerous times, never being able to settle or establish a community.
Being selected by Habitat for Humanity has brought our family hope and is the miracle we have needed to set our life on a safe and positive course. Partnering on this new construction will allow us to have the attention to detail necessary to accommodate our family's needs that would not be attainable for us otherwise. This partnership will allow us to begin long term relationships and establish the community our family has been missing. We are excited to volunteer with Habitat for years to come. We are overwhelmed with relief, happiness, and gratitude. We could never begin to express what this opportunity means to us.
