Welcome to Habitat for Humanity of East Polk County

Thank you @WellsFargo Builds for helping us make dreams come true. 

Hello, my name is Samantha Santiago.  I was born in New York but raised in Florida.  I have the privilege of working with special needs children as a Register Behavior Technician which I thoroughly enjoy.  Home-ownership has always been a dream of mine and thanks to Habitat for Humanity’s and Wells Fargo partnering together that dream is just about to become a reality.

Growing up my parents wanted a better life for our family. We moved away from everyone we knew and a very dangerous area with hopes of a better future. I didn’t understand at the time but it was the best decision. They gave us a loving, reliable, and wonderful home. I hope to do the same for my children.

I have two beautiful daughters, Kaylani is 9 years old (quiet and sweet) and McKenzie is 3 years old (sassy and has a lot of spunk.) They both keep me on my toes with thousands of questions. I want to give them a place where they can feel safe and secure. A backyard they can play and bond as sisters do.

I am truly blessed that Wells Fargo and Habitat for Humanity of East Polk County Inc. have come together on this project. The feeling that soon I will be a homeowner is unreal!  Being simply considered with this opportunity to give my daughters a place of their own to call home is so humbling.  Habitat for Humanity of East Polk County Inc.  has helped so many families and I am just completely in awe just knowing I can be a part of it. I have met some incredible people along the way that I am looking forward to maintaining newfound friendships.

I would like to thank both Well Fargo and Habitat for Humanity of East Polk County Inc.  for the wonderful experience. Working at the different sites has taught me so much and truly humbled me more. My daughters are so excited that they will have their own rooms. I always liked the idea of helping others build their homes. I now have the satisfaction of building my forever home.
