Leroy and Elsie Freeman sit on the steps of Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia’s brand-new guesthouse, which was conceived by Habitat as a safe place for families to stay, in this time of the coronavirus, while their homes are undergoing critical, large-scale repairs. The Freemans, the first couple ever to use the guesthouse, were confined there through the Thanksgiving holidays, so Habitat delivered everything they needed to create a festive meal away from home: food, fixin’s, and table decor.
