“This home will be a foundation for my family to find peace and to grow! Words cannot express how grateful we are for this opportunity!” – Deanna Redic 💚
The whole Redic Family came out for a landscaping day and worked alongside our partners from A&W Energy! Deanna and her kids are so grateful to A&W Energy for sponsoring their new home and for their employees who volunteered to help build it.

Soon the family will have a safe, healthy, and affordable place to call home! Deanna and her children currently live in Section 8 housing. She had tried to get out of it for years, but expenses, including those related to one of her children’s sickle cell disease, have kept them stuck.

Thanks to Deanna’s affordable Habitat mortgage, she will finally be able to break free. Deanna is the latest in a longstanding tradition of strong mom’s partnering with Trinity Habitat to build a better future for themselves and their children. When she first qualified to purchase her Habitat home, Deanna told us that, “No matter how long it takes, I’m not giving up! When we move into our new home, my children will see I never gave up on making a better life for all of us.”
Deanna’s dreams are to see all her kids graduate college, to finish college herself before she turns 40, and to open her own 24-hour daycare to support hardworking families. Her Habitat home will be the perfect foundation for all of these dreams to come true.
We have so many wonderful examples of Habitat parents and children using this opportunity to complete higher levels of education and to advance their careers. You can read many of them at TrinityHabitat.org/stories.
A&W Energy Team on First Day of Build (Before COVID-19 hit)
With their core value of stewardship, A&W Energy decided that partnering with Trinity Habitat and the Redic Family would be an ideal way to serve their local community and fulfill their core value of stewardship. In 2020, they became a new full house sponsor providing all the funds necessary to build the Redic Family’s new home.
We are so grateful to A&W Energy for their partnership! If your organization is interested in partnering with us in building strong families and neighborhoods, you can learn more at TrinityHabitat.org/partner.
