Loicemene and Jean

Hometown: Port-au-Prince, Haiti

Louicemene and Jean have been a huge help in our East Naples ReStore, helping to clean and process merchandise as part of their process to become Habitat homeowners.

Did you know that every prospective Habitat homeowner puts in 500 hours of “sweat equity” as part of their journey to homeownership? Those hours are logged helping to build their homes and those of their neighbors on the job site, in a series of classes designed to give them tools to be successful homeowners, and some even complete hours volunteering in our ReStores.
