Amazing Mother’s Day Surprise in Collinsville, IL

Single mom, Amber, along with her four-year-old son and one-year-old daughter entered their new Lewis and Clark Habitat for Humanity home on Monday, May 7 and were shocked to find it completely furnished thanks to Aaron’s Inc. and U-Haul. In addition to working full-time, Amber has been spending her weekends putting in “sweat equity” hours to complete the requirements to purchase her first home from Habitat and wondered how she would purchase everything she desired to turn the house into a home. Thanks to the Homes for the Holidays program in partnership with Aaron’s and U-Haul, her son will be sleeping in his Batman bed, her daughter in her Minnie Mouse crib and all of the other items wanted fill the home including washer & dryer, kitchen supplies, computer, and more. Amber’s family is the 47th family surprised by First Things First through the Homes for the Holidays program.

Since 2009, First Things First has partnered with Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity to help provide affordable housing solutions in Cedar Rapids. On April 23, Kurt and Brenda were back in Kurt’s hometown to add some of their own sweat equity on a home funded by First Things First and area churches through the Building on Faith partnership. First Things First has pledged $25,000 per year for the past several years to offer a hand up to one deserving family each year.
