This award was presented for Habitat’s work in building Zero-Energy Ready affordable housing and marks the fourth straight year that Habitat Catawba Valley has received this honor.
Latoya and her 13 year old son, Ny’meir, are currently living with family in Maiden. Latoya is on disability and is unable to work at this time, but she keeps busy helping her relatives by watching their children when they need a hand. Ny’meir currently attends Maiden Middle School as an 8th grader and is already thinking ahead with plans to attend college.
Latoya’s family enjoys attending church, playing and watching basketball and just having some good time together as family.
Latoya has been through an unsettling set of circumstances with her health and living situation and now lives with family, paying rent and carrying her weight as part of a larger household.
When Latoya first found out she was accepted as a Habitat homebuyer she says her heart was filled with joy! She said, “I first thanked God and then I shared the good news with my mom and my son. “ Ny’Meir gets excited about having their own home and is anxious to help his mom with some of her sweat equity.

A local home built by Habitat Catawba Valley was featured as the "Home of the Month" by the U.S. Department of Energy's Zero Energy Ready Home (ZERH) Program earlier this month.
Habitat's "Julia II" is a 1,240 square-foot, one level, three bedroom, two bathroom home located in the Northstone subdivision in Hickory, NC. After its completion in 2018, the home earned the U.S. DOE Zero Energy Ready Home Housing Innovation Award. The home is calculated to save $1,100 on utilities annually in comparison to typical new homes, and $49,000 in the first 30 years.
“Habitat for Humanity of Catawba Valley takes great pride in building high-performance homes that are not only affordable to purchase, but also affordable to operate and maintain. We believe that affordability and sustainability go hand-in-hand.” - Derek Ross, Habitat Catawba Valley Construction Supervisor
