BUILDING STRENGTH, STABILITY, & SELF- RELIANCE
The Noo Family
Beh Beh and Do Noo are parents to four children. Originally from Burma, the couple migrated to Thailand seeking refuge from war and ended up in the Mae La refugee camp, where they resided for 24 years. They remember their home in Thailand as a one room “building” made from bamboo with leaves serving as their roof. The home did not lock or offer any privacy or security for the family of 6 and the roof would rarely hold up during storm season.
This family set a goal of homeownership when they partnered with Habitat for Humanity in 2018 and have since completed over 800 volunteer hours, attended 30 financial stability classes preparing the family for homeownership and have saved $1,500 for their required down-payment. The family says that their favorite part of being Habitat partners has been learning to build a home from the ground up and they can’t wait for the space they will acquire when they move into their four bedroom Habitat home.
Their home will be the first in the new Lee Green's Addition to El Barrio.
