Cynthia Lewis is working toward a Habitat for Humanity home. This mother of two young children, one of whom has endured multiple medical procedures for a congenital birth defect, needs financial help to fund the renovations for the Habitat home that she qualifies for.
Cynthia and her children live in rural Swain County, about 40 miles west of Asheville, smack in the middle of the Nantahala National Forest.
Her home is among the 104 being built as part of the State Employees Credit Union’s Mountains-to-the-Sea Challenge – a $10 million initiative for a new or renovated home in each of North Carolina’s 100 counties.
Habitat N.C. is trying to raise $20,000 to get this deserving family started toward home-ownership. Once her home is built, Cynthia will assume a zero-percent-interest mortgage through the State Employees Credit Union.
