My name is Alicia. I grew up in Westlake and graduated from Bowling Green State University. I have lived in Medina since 2005. I have two daughters, Meredith, age 11, and Kate, who is 16 months old. THESE GIRLS ARE MY WORLD! Our dog's name is Ruby and she is 13 years old! I have worked for Medina County Job & Family Services for over 11 years now. I enjoy arts & crafts, re-purposing projects, re-finishing furniture, and spending time with my children and family.
My daughter Meredith is in 6th grade. She is very smart, very tall (and beautiful if I do say so myself), a creative writer, friendly, funny, and an excellent swimmer. She is currently in her recycling club at school and hopes to try out for volleyball and cheerleading next year.
My adorable, fun loving little peanut, Kate, is a MAMA'S GIRL!! Her hobbies include hanging onto my leg, pulling on my shirt to pick her up, and crying when I leave her side LOL. But when she does decide to let go, she loves giving the dog her Cheerios, playing outside with bubbles and her slide, and painting rocks with Meredith and I. She loves going to the pool, Minnie Mouse, and animal flash cards (she's a smarty pants).
Our family consists of myself, Amanda, my 16 1/2 year old daughter, Jocelyn and 14 1/2 year old son, Joseph. Jocelyn will be a senior at Wadsworth High School and also graduate with her STNA from the Four City Compact Program at Barberton High School.

My name is Troy and I'm a single father of two daughters and a "paw" to one little grandson. I work as a maintenance technician for the Medina County District Libraries. My youngest daughter Cyra Mae is 13 and lives in Florida with her mom and stepdad. She stays with me in the summer. My oldest daughter Valerie, who's 25, came to live with me when she got pregnant almost 4 yrs ago
And even though we all love each other dearly, the one bedroom half a house we share, just is not big enough and lack of space has a tendency to test our patience with one another. They share the bedroom and I been sleeping on the couch since they moved in. But please understand this,... I'm NOT complaining.. I'm truly grateful to have a place to live. To live next door to an awesome brother and his family who help us out a lot. To have an opportunity to see my grandson everyday, when some grandparents see theirs once a year.
And last but not least, I am and will be, forever grateful for Habitat for Humanity and all the awesome people that are helping my little family and I have a home of our own some day...
I was born in Wadsworth and was moved to Texas when I was 12. I have been estranged from a large part of my family, for 42 years. I returned for a visit, and found I have a deep love for the town and the desire to come to know my family and help them as I am able, in the chal-lenges of their elderly years. I am very grateful for the opportunity to come home and re establish my roots. I love to read and write. I am fascinated by the history and antiquity of Wadsworth and I am looking forward to making a home here and establishing my roots.
Hi! My name is Samantha(Sammy). I am 28 years old. I have a 5 year old son named, Jazmeer(Jaz). He currently attends Buckeye Preschool and will be going into kindergarten in the fall. I am currently working at Eliza Northrop Elementary as an Instructional Paraprofessional. I have been with the school system for 3 years now. I also work as a Waitress at Yours Truly restaurant in Medina. I have been working there for 11 years.
My son and I are currently living with my mom and dad in Litchfield, Ohio. For 5 years I lived on my own but when my son turned 3 we needed to leave our living situation and move back in with my parents. I took the 2 years we have been with them to rebuild my credit and financial stability. It has been a blessing living with them and being able to get back on my feet. However, their house is only a 2 bedroom and my son and I have been sharing a room. I applied for Habitat for Humanity so that I can have an opportunity to have my own home for Jaz and I. Being a good mother is extremely important to me and I want to do everything I can to provide a secure future for Jazmeer.

Hi! My name is Andrew and I go by AJ.
I am 22 years old and have lived in Brunswick my whole life. I graduated from Brunswick High School and the Medina County Career Center in 2013. My senior year I started working at ABC rental and I am still employed by them. I studied Power Equipment at MCCC. Currently, I am a mechanic and work on all types of equipment plus cars.
Prior to graduating, I was in Medina County 4-H Sharpshoot-ers Club, Young Marines, and attended Grace Church Youth Group. My hobbies are biking, swimming, camping, sleeping, old cars, and racing. I am renting a townhouse in Brunswick with my doggy, Loki. I have lived there for about 3 years.
I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. I lived most of my life in Garfield Heights, and moved to Brunswick in 1993, and then to Guilford Township in 2000 in order to be closer to my elderly parents, who at that time lived in Seville, Ohio. I spent most of my working career in Cleveland as a paralegal, as well an assistant to the Medina County probate judge in the early 2000s.
I have not owned my own home for many years, and am very much looking forward to the wonderful experience of home ownership. I am very grateful and humbled to be affiorded this opportunity.
My hobbies currently are my new husband, Andrew, who I recently married on February 25, 2017, our three dogs—Grandma, Bella Mae, and Zip (aka Peanut). I enjoy the outdoors, nature walks, and motorcycle rides with my husband on beautiful days.
