Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity is taking donations to help the Hedrick family. Robert and Ashley Hedrick work hard to provide for their family. Even though both are working, it has been impossible to find a big enough safe place to raise their family. They have moved many times and are now living in a family member’s one room basement.
They have five beautiful girls, Kourtney, 9; Nataley, 7; Makinley, 5; Allie, 2 and Kyley, 1. Nataley has asthma and is allergic to yellow jackets. Makinley has trouble with one of her eyes, it is turned in and up which makes it difficult for her to judge distance. Robert and Ashley have to travel to Morgantown monthly for Makinley’s doctor’s appointments.
Robert and Ashley had known others that had a Habitat home and friends and family encouraged them to apply. They were hesitant because no one else would help them with getting a home but they finally came in and applied. When they found out they were approved, all Robert and Ashley could do was smile; the girls, on the other hand, jumped up and down with joy.
Ashley said “it will give our girls a home of their own and we won’t have to move from place to place anymore,” and Robert added “I believe it will make us happier and we will enjoy life better.”
Robert and Ashley would like to thank all the financial donors who are helping build their home. Robert said,“they are helping change our lives and making our dreams and our girl’s dreams come true, we can’t say enough, thank you all!”
Go to almostheavenhabitat.org to make your donate online, or you can mail your donation to Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity, P.O. Box 192, White Sulphur Springs, WV 24986. Construction on the Hedrick home will begin in 2015.
