Aliciah’s Dream of a Home

Aliciah’s journey to homeownership is an inspiring testament to determination, sacrifice, and commitment. Growing up in a Habitat home with her siblings, Aliciah witnessed firsthand the power of having a stable and nurturing environment. This early experience fueled her ambition to create a better life for her own children.
Aliciah faced challenges head-on, earning her high school degree through a GED program while working tirelessly to support her growing family. Balancing two jobs – in a bustling warehouse and as a housekeeper in a hotel – she exemplified resilience and a relentless work ethic.

Aliciah’s four children, ranging in age from 14 to 19, are her greatest motivation. Fueled by her desire to leave a lasting legacy for them, she decided to take the courageous step of breaking free from the cycle of renting and invest in a home of her own. Two of her children will share in her triumph as they step into their new Dayton Habitat home together.

For Aliciah, homeownership is more than a roof over her family’s heads; it’s a place for dreams to grow. With aspirations as unique as her daughters – Kiariah’s dream of becoming a veterinarian and Ja-Naye’s vision of owning her own hair salon – Aliciah believes that stability is the key to unlocking their potential. Having a yard to tend and a community to be part of represents a profound shift from mere survival to thriving.

Aliciah’s path to homeownership was influenced by her mother’s positive experience with Habitat. This connection led her to reach out to Habitat. After years of renting, Aliciah is finally on the cusp of providing her family with a place they can truly call home.

Aliciah’s story is a testament to the power of hope, hard work, and the unbreakable bonds of family. Her pursuit of homeownership showcases the kind of spirit that transforms challenges into opportunities and dreams into reality.
