“Habitat for Humanity is my light at the end of a very long tunnel.”

Meet Taira Harris, a resilient single mother on her journey towards homeownership with her two children, Tyliah and Tyree. Taira, at 32 years old, describes her family as adventurous and full of energy, with a love for outdoor activities like visiting parks and exploring new places. Tyliah, 8, enjoys basketball and running with friends, while Tyree, 6, has a passion for animals and discovering new things. Together, they cherish moments of joy and growth, eagerly anticipating the stability of having a home to call their own.

Reflecting on their past living situations, Taira shares the challenges they’ve faced with rising rent costs and discomfort in their home. “We have had to go without heat most winters,” she explains, “but I’ve done my best to keep them as comfortable as I can.” Despite the hardships, Taira remains resilient, determined to provide a better future for her children.

The news of being accepted into the Habitat for Humanity program brought overwhelming happiness to Taira and her family. “I didn’t believe it, it’s still unbelievable,” she admits. Taira has worked tirelessly to become debt-free, qualifying for this life-changing opportunity. She envisions a future where the weight of stress is lifted from her shoulders, replaced with the security of a stable home that belongs to her and her children.

Looking ahead, Taira eagerly anticipates the simple joys of having their own rooms and a backyard where family gatherings can take place. “They deserve their privacy,” she emphasizes, highlighting her children’s need for personal space and a sense of belonging. With determination in her voice, Taira expresses her motivation for building: “I am building because I want to make a better life for my family.”

Taira’s story is a testament to the resilience and determination of single mothers striving to create a better future for their children.
