Michelle jefferson, a single mother of four, purchased a Jericho Road home in September 2008. Michelle first learned about Jericho Road after being selected as a grant recipient by the National Football League member Jarvis Green’s Founda-tion. The foundation assists single working mothers im-pacted by Hurricane Katrina locate permanent housing.
After losing everything, Michelle decided to use the gift to help move her family into a neighborhood that could provide better schools and a more stable environment for her children. With the help of the Neighborhood Housing Services of New Orleans, she completed homebuyer training and learned how to improve and manage her credit. She soon heard about the Jericho Road homes.
Michelle and her children are so excited to become first-time homeowners. “I fell in love with house the moment I saw it, and it’s a great location that is close to everything we need - the children’s school, public transportation, even the Mardi Gras Parade Route. Owning a home has been the greatest accomplishment in my life and has given me pride and confidence. If I can buy a home, I can do anything,” Jefferson said.
