Affordable housing part two: A home of our own
Zadar, in her mid ‘30s, is a single mother raising a Brady-sized brood – the oldest is 10, the youngest (twins) approaching 2 – on the miniscule salary she brings in working in a medical office, along with a $500 monthly subsidy for food stamps.
With six kids, none of it goes very far.
In mid-August, construction will begin on a new, five bed, two bath home, not far up the road, built especially for her by Habitat For Humanity. She applied to the program in 2016. “It’s not a huge lot, but it works for us, and my finances,” Zadar beams.
