Laqua Family Sponsors Their 4th Down Home Family Move-In


“My sincere thanks to everyone who put smiles on our faces. It is one of the best joys we have ever received since being in the U.S.,” shared Fatmata.

Down Home (DH) gives thanks for their dear friends & four-time sponsor, Steve & Patty Laqua Family, who have been a part of the DH story since 2018! Their incredible family of built-in team of muscle completely transformed an empty space into a beautiful, comfortable, and dignified home for a mother and two children just in time for Christmas. They even created items that added personalized touches in the home.

“Every year it is so exciting to see the growth of DH. They keep getting bigger and better. The empowering impact they have in our community is inspiring. We love the detail and follow through they have with each family. We’d recommend a sponsorship to anyone! It’s something our kids look forward to every year,” shared Steve & Patty Laqua.

Fatmata and her family’s gratitude for everyone involved in their home transformation was extended as they prepared and served a meal for all volunteers! This was a surprise and heartwarming first for DH!

Founded in 2017, DH empowers lives by furnishing homes for families and individuals emerging from homelessness. For more info visit
