Meet Rukiya and Muse - who along with their 6 children ages 1-10, have been living in Anawim Housing for the past 4 years. Both having come from Somalia, they are happy to be planting roots here in Iowa and watching their kids grow up and attend school close to home. Their family has made memories, traditions, and experienced the warmth and comfort of home while living with Anawim Housing and are very excited to be taking the next step toward home ownership. This is not only a very exciting time for the family, but something that Anawim truly celebrates. Helping families and individuals reach the next ladder rung.. whether that be getting a job, addressing health issues, or something as big as home ownership.. we love to share their stories of hope and success.
Thousands of people call Anawim Housing home each year. Many live in houses well over 100 years old while others call newly constructed townhouses their home. The connecting principle is that each of these homes is both well-maintained and affordable. Because of our comprehensive approach to stable housing, our families continue to live with us for over a year - but how do we continue to keep our rents affordable? How do we continue to build more units and maintain the conditions of our homes? How do we continue to offer supportive services and programs to our families? Through the generosity of our donors, we are able to ensure that we maintain quality while keeping our rent affordable and our tenants -over half of them children - in their homes.
