About The Hill Family: Our Next Homeowner Family

Chyenne and her family were accepted in the Habitat Home Buyer program in July 2016. Chyenne applied to Habitat so she could provide a better life for her children. She currently lives in an overcrowded mobile home with her children Chiniece, Jabrairon, Justin, Achiya, Tyteonna, Jameson, Juleah and Jacoby.

Chyenne was born and raised in Conway and has worked in the hospitality industry for the past seven years. She currently is an Assistant Manager at a local restaurant. Chyenne and her children are one of the fastest families to work through the Habitat Home Buyer Program. They are hardworking and always have positive attitudes. The children are all active in sports and karate and talk frequently about how they can’t wait to decide who gets to share a room when they have a house. Chyenne says she will continue to strive for a positive and brighter future for her children and looks forward to the day when they have a place to call home.
