Family Story


Modesta is the picture of health— the fit, hardworking mother of three menu plans, exercises and takes regular walks around her Stratton Flats neighborhood. She’s quick to say that it wasn’t always this way and shares her safe, stable Habitat home was a catalyst for change.

A few years ago, Modesta was overweight, lacked energy and confidence. She was under enormous stress and was living in an overcrowded situation. After helping build her home—working more than 250 ‘sweat equity’ hours—a switch flipped. Her stress decreased and she focused on getting healthier.

“When I started with Habitat, I was overweight. I didn’t have confidence, I couldn’t keep on a diet, maybe it was not believing in myself,” Modesta shares. “Getting the home made me realize I did all this (building a home), I thought, ‘why can’t I do more?’ With the help of my kids, I did.”

Getting healthy was a family affair: They started working out together. Modesta’s older daughter started cooking for the younger. And they began eating healthier—it was easy to cook healthier meals in their new kitchen.

The Habitat home helped Modesta get healthy, relieved the stress that came from living in an overcrowded home and let her stay in Eagle County, where she grew up; where her mother and grandmother still live.

“I didn’t realize how tired I was, my body never hurt even as big as I was. I was able to stand on my feet all day able at work, when I got home I would sit on the couch. Now I don’t care about the TV, I have the energy to keep going and be with my kids. I want to inspire my kids too: If they put their mind to something, they can do it.”
