Family: Jordan & Ai, and their 3 children Bio: Jordan teaches 5th and 6th grade and Ai works as a stay-at-home wife and mother. They started applying for Habitat for Humanity housing last year when they discovered they were expecting their third child. They knew they needed to move out of their two-bedroom apartment, but the idea of owning their own home seemed unlikely. “The fact that we’re going to be homeowners for the first time is just incredible,” said Jordan. “It feels like a miracle. We can do this. Without habitat that wouldn’t be possible.” The family loves the fact that they can be a part of the process and see their home take shape from the ground up.

Whitehouse Addition - 24 Homes
On October 19, 2019 we dedicated the final house in our 24-home Whitehouse Addition project in Pasco. This was our second largest neighborhood build and we are so grateful to everyone that supported us in our efforts. We hope that you will join us for future dedications to see the impact of your support and the joy of our Habitat homeowners when they receive the key to their new home.
“Habitat for Humanity is starting its latest project called the Whitehouse Addition in what will be the first ever habitat community. The neighborhood will house 24 low-income families and will be built in Pasco. The three-year plan will build 8 houses each year with partnerships with Tri-Tech Skill Center, Washington State University and others that sponsor the homes and work to build them.” –NBC Right Now, 2015
