Fayette County Habitat for Humanity Selects Partner Family for New Home Build

Updated: Jul 24, 2023

By: Kenny Couch

Fayette County Habitat for Humanity (Habitat) is pleased to announce the selection of the partner family for their milestone tenth home build.

This year, the honor goes to Mr. Wright, a dedicated single father of four children. Despite this,

Mr. Wright works tirelessly at two jobs to provide a stable home for his family. Currently

employed as the lead prep chef at Dell Seaton Medical Center at the University of Texas, he

commutes from his apartment in La Grange to Austin. On his days off, Mr. Wright works part-

time as the assistant cook at Schulenburg Regency. Currently, Mr. Wright shares a two-bedroom

apartment with his four children aged 7, 11, 14, and 17, and is excited to be moving into a home

with adequate space for the five of them.

Habitat selects partner families based on several criteria, including their level of need for

housing, their willingness to work alongside volunteers and their ability to pay an affordable

mortgage. The concept of "sweat equity" is an integral part of the Habitat program, whereby partner families contribute their time and effort to the construction process. Mr. Wright has

displayed great enthusiasm in participating in the building of his future home and has shown the

dedication and financial capability to fulfill his mortgage obligations.

Fayette County Habitat for Humanity is proud to collaborate with individuals and families in our

community, assisting them in building or improving a place they can proudly call home. By

working hand in hand with volunteers, Habitat homeowners actively participate in the

construction process while also paying an affordable mortgage. Through your support, Habitat

homeowners can achieve the strength, stability, and independence necessary to create a better

life for themselves and their families.

“We're excited to continue building homes for hard-working families here in Fayette County. It

has been a pleasure to meet and get to know Mr. Wright and we look forward to working with

him and his kids to make the dream of homeownership a reality,” said Kenny Couch, Habitat

Executive Director, “We ask everyone in the community to come together with us to help bless

this family with a place they can truly call home. If you, your business, your church, or your

friends are interested in being a part of this life-changing experience please reach out to us to get involved!”

Donations can be made online at or mail your donation to PO Box

1127, La Grange, TX 78945, United States. For those interested in volunteering, please reach out

to Executive Director, Kenny Couch, at (210) 816-0942 or

Together, we can create lasting positive change within our community.
