Elmore Legacy Provides a Forever Home for the Brown Family

Robert Elmore made a generous gift to help Habitat for Humanity of Broward purchase its ReStore more than a dozen years ago. He also had the foresight to direct a gift to Habitat from his estate, to help families in the future experience the joy of home. He could not have known whose lives he would change. For Mr. Elmore, it was enough to know that his planned gift would impact a deserving family in a powerful way, and change them for the better…forever.

Mr. Elmore’s daughters Cyndi Griffith, Nancy Demmery and Pam Hayes and grandson Christian Griffith visited the home made possible by their father’s planned gift during our Women Build Kick-Off in January. “We are thrilled to see what dad’s legacy has made happen,” said Pam. “It warms our hearts to know that Krystal Brown and her children will now have a forever home.”


Habitat future homeowner Krystal could not be more thankful. Mom to Kelvin (10) and Chrishanti (8), Krystal gained custody of her nephew Jhaden (12) after the passing of her sister. Krystal has worked as a department manager for Walmart for the last seven years and is grateful that her children will now be able to grow up in the same house and experience what it means to come to their own home at the end of a school day.

“What a beautiful gift from their family to ours,” shared Krystal. “There are no words to express my thanks.”
