Meet the Nguyen Family

Meet Minh Nguyen and her family. Women Build are sponsors of the family’s new home in Cully! A single mom of 5 girls, Minh has had homeownership as her goal for many years now. She has lived in subsidized housing for over 6 years and would like more space for her growing girls. Although this was her first time applying for our homeownership program, she has come in multiple times to the office over the past two years in order to be as prepared as possible to apply for our program. Minh works full time as a housekeeper at the Heathman Hotel. She makes it a priority for her daughters to understand the importance of hard work and education with plans for all 5 going to college.
