After 22 years of paying rent, Laura Jones was ready to leave Kansas City for Mississippi to be closer to family and to start her life over.
“I’ve been in Kansas City for 22 years and have never had a home. I always tried to do better and better, but it seemed like where I was living was getting worse and worse. I felt like I had nothing to show for all my work, so I was ready to pack up and leave.”
She was trapped, stuck in an apartment she didn’t own in a neighborhood with increasing gun violence. But now, as a Habitat KC homeowner, Laura is taking control of her life and building a future full of new opportunities.
