Welcome, Dineyshka!

Dineyshka, a young mother of three, recently moved into our Passive House. She evacuated Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria and has been struggling to make a new life here, having doubled-up with family members in Joliet, then moving to Chicago with big hopes only to wind up on the streets with her children. Thanks to our collaboration with FEMA, HUD, CHA, and Humble Design, we are so grateful to help her celebrate the holidays in a safe, warm home. In 2019, Dineyshka looks forward to adding the final touches to her home and transitioning from multiple part time jobs to a career. We look forward to supporting her and her family as they build roots in our community and are excited to create many new beginnings for other families as well. Cheers to everything 2019 holds in store!
