Thursday’s Bright Spot shines on a lot of love, and a little sweat.

It’s a new beginning for Marquita Anderson and her three children. Thursday, Home Leasing Construction raised the walls on what will soon be Anderson’s Flower City Habitat for Humanity home on Orchard Street.

Anderson is working two jobs as she pursues a teaching degree. She’s also completing 300 hours of sweat equity through Habitat building and educational classes.

“We are so excited to start a new chapter in our lives,” Anderson told 13WHAM News. “To know when you turn that key and you are walking into your house, and nobody can tell you to get out, it’s all on you – paying your bills, but it’s yours – it’s amazing!”

“This is a day filled with promise and hope for what’s coming in the future,” said Matt Flanigan of Flower City Habitat.

When Anderson completes the home buyer program, she will purchase the house through a no-profit mortgage that will help fund additional Flower City Habitat homes.
