Pattaponwat family, 2019

Sansanee is originally from Thailand, but she and her son Gawyn have lived in McLean County for the last 5 years. Sansanee works in food services at Illinois State University. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, exercise, fitness, aerobics, and any other activities that promote health and wellness. Gawyn is 6 and enjoys anything with wheels, including cars, trains, trucks, carts, and strollers.

When asked what becoming a Habitat Partner Family means to her, Sansanee says she looks forward to being part of building a better community and being “connected”.  She is excited to be in a decent and affordable home where she can feel safe and to be in a place that “belongs to us”.
