Wyandanch, NY - July 25, 2016 - Single mother of three young children Barbara Galloway was supported by Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk and volunteers from Citi for a wall raising ceremony and construction kickoff in Wyandanch to begin their dream of home ownership.

Barbara and her two daughters, Keana, 14, and Alicia, 4; and her son Antwan, 3, currently live in a small two-bedroom apartment with very little space for their family to live and grow. Partnering with Habitat will provide a safe and affordable new home for the Galloway family.

Barbara has worked at the Long Island Developmental Disability Services Office for the past seven years while also attending New York College in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree to provide her children with a better future.
