unity on the avenue
Unity on the Avenue will consist of two homes this year. Emerging Threats will be leading the way on our new construction at 1217 Wabash Avenue, which is set to become the home of Chrishaun Cockrell.
The churches of the Unity Build are banding together to complete the renovation of 1109 Wabash Avenue. The family at 1109 Wabash Avenue is yet to be determined.

Chrishaun Cockrell was born and raised in Chicago Illinois but came to Lafayette in 2013 for a fresh start and to be closer to family. After beginning her college career at a city college in Chicago, Chrishaun finished her Associate’s degree at Ivy Tech in the Spring of 2016. A new job opportunity at Bauer Family Resources quickly followed hergraduation. This wide-eyed and passionate young woman decided that a home is the next step in adulthood for her.
Chrishaun is excited for her future. She has a long list of places she would like to visit, books she would like to read and people she would like to meet. When she is not working with young children and their families you will probably find her at a local coffeehouse with a good book in hand. A sense of community is something that Chrishaun is hoping to find in Lafayette and she thinks Habitat is one good step forward towards this goal.
Financial stability is something that is on Chrishaun’s radar. With dreams of travels and experiences she realizes that stable employment and a stable home will be important for her so that she can accomplish her goals. Along with the stability that a Habitat home will provide Chrishaun is also excited to learn all of the skills that she will need in order to be the best homeowner possible.
