New chapter starts for latest Habitat Home recipient

Cynthia Bratton and her two daughter cut a blue ribbon as Habitat for Humanity supporters say "Welcome home!"

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Cynthia Bratton said her new home is a dream come true. In the next two weeks, Bratton and her two daughters will move into their home in Fuller’s Landing, a neighborhood with homes from Habitat for Humanity.

“It’s just a blessing. It’s just like a dream come true. It’s like a new start, a new beginning in life. It’s like a new chapter in your life,” Bratton said at her house dedication on Saturday.

It’s the first home for her and her two daughters and Bratton couldn’t be more thankful to those who helped build the home.

“I know it’s a lot of work to do,” Bratton said. “[Builders] used their hands and they got the job done—and they did it with kindness and goodness and gentleness. We built a family doing all this together.”

Each recipient of a Habitat for Humanity house has to put in sweat equity hours, meaning work on their house, a neighbor’s house or work in the ReStore Shop.

Fuller’s Landing is located on the Northwest side of Fort Wayne on West Cook Road.
