A Habitat ReStore is Coming to Cape May County!

Meet the Garcia Santiago Family
Wildwood native Abigail Garcia met Angel Santiago in Puerto Rico. When they decided to move back to Cape May County in 2013, they were determined to make a better life for their family of five. A promise of housing fell through, and they foundthemselves homeless. Good fortune brought them to Family Promise of Cape May County, where caring volunteers provided meals & shelter.
Abigail and Angel responded to hardship with perseverance and grit. They quickly secured jobs, saved money, and soon moved into a tiny rental house in Cape May Court House. When they applied to become Habitat homeowners in 2016, they stood out as just the kind of family who would take
the opportunity homeownership provides, and make it the foundation for success and a better future.
Daughter Tania (12), son Jay (9) and daughter Mileydi (8) may now share an unheated attic bedroom, but soon they will
have rooms to call their own, where Tania will be free to study the math she loves, Jay to read his history books, and Mileydi
to dance in her pink ballet shoes. Construction is scheduled to start on a new Habitat home for the Garcia Santiago family at 209 Reeves Street in Whitesboro in April 2017.
