Tia Walker is a single mother of four boys: Demetrius (22), Brian (18), Shawn (14), and Jayden (5). Even though her hands are full with her boys, she was still determined to achieve homeownership through Habitat.
“This is such a better feeling than renting. You feel much more comfortable owning your own home,” said Tia.
Tia’s sons enjoy sports and being outside; their home gives them a safe place where they can play basketball in the driveway and football in their backyard.
Family means a lot to the Walkers. Tia is especially close with her mother who she has been taking care of since her stroke a few years back. Now that the Walkers have their own home, they can enjoy having their family over whenever they like.
“I’ve always dreamed of owning my own home for my children and myself. When they go off to college, they can always come home, where there’s love, warmth and comfort,” said Tia.
Congratulations, Tia, on one year of homeownership!
