Wesley Pamphile works at a childcare center preparing children for kindergarten, and his wife Hattie works at a large retail store on evenings and weekends. Both parents always coordinate their schedules to make sure someone is always home with their four children ages 6, 11, 12, and 13. The family of six previously lived in a tight two-bedroom apartment with recurring mold and located in a neighborhood with pervasive crime issues. Fortunately they were able to move into Hattie's father's home but only briefly until he passed away and the house was sold by the bank. It wasn't until they were able to move into their new Habitat home, in December that the family was able to end the pattern of housing instability.
"We are absolutely speechless. Words cannot describe how much we truly appreciate your kindness and how much you tremendously helped our family," said Wesley and Hattie Pamphile. "So we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. One act of kindness can make a world of difference."
