Karnese is the proud mother of four exceptional young men-Kencent 19, Travis 12, Leonard 11 and Trevon 5. For nine years, Karnese has been a dedicated employee working as an Insurance Specialist at Combined Resources and as the Lead Cashier for Home Depot. In addition to being a student at Broward College, her son Kencent is employed as the gym assistant at the local Boys and Girls Club and also finds time to give back to the community by volunteering at the Jim and Jen March Club.
The close knit family are members of Radiant Living Worship Center and in their free time, they enjoy taking trips to Orlando or spending quality family time around the television. Before coming to Habitat, Karnese and her boys were living in a small apartment.
Thanks to the Family Home Sponsorship by JM Family Enterprises, they now have a spacious home to call their own. ”One of my dreams was to become a homeowner, which Habitat has helped make possible,” said Karnese. “Now I can focus on living a healthier lifestyle, and being a great mom!”
