Every dollar raised gets Habitat for Humanity closer to completing the next affordable home for a hardworking family.
All of the proceeds from the event are designated to purchasing building materials home No. 7 of the 16-home Heritage Oaks Project on Joyce Drive in Grass Valley.
Habitat broke ground on this build in June of this year, and it will be the future home of Amanda Polejewski and her young son, Jordan.
Jordan is a 2-year-old energetic and happy little boy who was born with cystic fibrosis. Jordan needs full-time care with as many as 20 different breathing and other treatments per day.
Amanda truly epitomizes the term “supermom.” She lovingly and tirelessly takes care of Jordan, and in spite of all that Amanda has overcome in her young life, she is still going to school two days a week, working towards the goal of a nursing degree.
An affordable home to care for her son means everything to her.
The Habitat model will bring her cost for housing down to 30 percent or less of her income, giving her financial relief from current housing costs to be able to make ends meet and pay for Jordan’s care needs.
