My name is Brittni Curl. I, along with my son, Brantlee, became the 34th homeowner for L-C Valley Habitat for Humanity. It was not an easy journey, but I am happy to share my story and spread hope.
I am partnered with a lovely woman named Stephanie, from a group called Parents as Teachers. After several home visits and knowing the challenges I was facing with my apartment, she encouraged me to apply for the Habitat house. Despite initial protests, she finally convinced me to apply in December 2019.
In February 2020 I received a letter stating I was moving to the next stage of the selection process.
Daisy Albert, selected in 2008 officially became an LCV HFH homeowner in 2009, shares her experience being chosen.
She was a single mom, doing it all on her own with 5 children in a 2 bedroom apartment until Habitat stepped in and gave her a hand up. Daisy counts her blessings every day and will never forget the feeling of having a house to call home.

Brittni is an industrious, hard-working mother of a delightful 17-month old little boy she describes as “the light of her life.” Brittni is devoted to providing the best possible future for him. However, the outdated baseboard heating in her apartment is expensive to run and poses an elevated risk because they get overly hot to the touch and previously burned burn him. She stated “I have to turn the heaters off at the breaker box and use space heaters in individual rooms, just to keep my son safe.”
