Freeport family enjoys Habitat home
FREEPORT (AP) — On the first night after moving into their new home, the Lacy family slept on the living room floor. They didn't care that they had no furniture. This was their new home, their first home to buy and share as a family.
Lawrence and Sheena Lacy are raising their two daughters Lanaya, 11, and Lauren, 2. They moved into their new house in July, a home they were able to purchase through Habitat for Humanity. The family has never owned a home before. They said while they are happy to be safe in their new surroundings, they were scared to take on the responsibility of home ownership.
Sheena said she and Lawrence looked at getting their own home as an opportunity. The house they previously lived in had been burglarized. They wanted better surroundings for their daughters. They said they wanted to feel safe. They love their new home.
