Elexis Broughton always dreamed of being a homeowner, and now it’s becoming a reality. Elexis and her husband, Rodney, and their daughters will soon move into their home in Oxford, thanks to Habitat for Humanity of Lake Sumter.
Things still feel surreal to Elexis, and she is reminded of how grateful she is when she sees the home.
“I remember when I was applying, I was hopeful, but there’s always that chance that someone else will be chosen,” she said. “When I got the call, I was at work and I just broke out in praise and was crying.”
