Meet the Presbyterian Habitat Partner

patriciaWe are pleased to announce our 2015 Presbyterian House project.  Churches of the Mid-Kentucky Presbytery will be helping Patricia Scriviner build a home for her family in Hazelwood. Patricia, 55, heard about Habitat’s homeownership program through a friend and began with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville in October of 2013. She was born in Louisville, KY and has one grown child who is disabled: Ronnie, 33 years old.


Patricia works as a cook at Hazelwood Center. In her spare time, she likes to go to the movies, go to church, spend time with her family and friends, and spend time with her son playing basketball, bowling, and shopping. Patricia is actively working to save money and become financially stable. She has attended Habitat’s budget classes and has met with a financial counselor to assist her in her goal of homeownership.


When asked what having a Habitat home means for her, she said “It means the world to me! I have always wanted to be a homeowner. This is my time, and I know if it wasn’t for God this wouldn’t be happening – I am blessed! My son is also excited. I want to put a basketball goal in the yard for him, and it will be more space when he visits. I’ll have a yard to walk around in & I won’t be so closed up in an apartment.”


“I’m so appreciative and grateful for the Habitat volunteers. I can’t thank them enough. When I think about what’s getting ready to happen to me, tears of joy come down my face. The Habitat volunteers and the committee that chose me for the program will always have a special place in my heart.”
