Crystal Alcantara Family

Alcantara Crystal Family 2018Crystal and her sons Rico 16, Aydan 13, and Landon 11 years old are watching their NEW house come up out of the ground! The boys attend Hickory High, Northview Middle School and Viewmont Elementary respectively. Besides being a busy mom, Crystal works as a medical assistant at Skin Surgery Center.

In their spare time Crystal likes running and DIY hobbies. Ricco plays basketball and runs track, Ayden enjoys football and basketball, and Landon likes reading, especially the Harry Potter series. The whole family enjoys video games!

This family of 4 is crowded living in a 2 bedroom apartment. When Crystal found out she was accepted as a Habitat homebuyer she was excited, relieved, and overwhelmed all at once! She says, “I felt that finally the struggle was over. I could finally stop paying high rent for small apartments and my kids could have their own room. I felt so proud to tell them we were getting a home of our own and we wouldn’t have to move from place to place anymore!”

Crystal looks forward to the time when her sons won’t be cramped into small living spaces and is relieved that they will be in a safe neighborhood. It will help financially because it’s more affordable than high rent and high power bills from poor insulation in old apartments. Crystal exclaims, “I am beyond grateful for this opportunity.”
