“Home is where love and dreams join together.”

Joselyn Johnson is a patient placement representative at Baycare who is a single mother to three children and working towards her nursing license. Her oldest daughter, Dhymond, is 15-years-old and loves to craft, design, and come up with new ideas. The middle child is her daughter, Jasyah, who is 8-years-old and is already a track star! She has been running since she was only three. Her youngest child is her son, Joshua. He is only two, but has a lot of energy! The family of four always sticks together and loves to go on family outings. Joselyn says “I want to give them the home that we all desire and deserve. I want to continue to teach my children how to survive and build a foundation.”

The Johnson Family’s living situation has been a struggle for a long time now. Joselyn shares that in her current home, the plumbing is awful. “Each toilet will back up into the bathtub. My landlord will send someone out to do patch work, but never fixes the problem. It gets so bad sometimes where we have to get a hotel room or stay with family in order to have functioning bathrooms.” Soon enough, with Habitat for Humanity, Joselyn and her family will not have to worry about any bathroom problems when they move into their new, safe, and affordable home.

Joselyn’s first thoughts after receiving her acceptance into the program were that she will finally have a forever home without any repair problems. “I’m finally accomplishing one of the things that I want and need in my life.” She is most looking forward to having somewhere that she can call home and where there is stability for her family.

Recently, Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco Counties has reopened their volunteer opportunities after the COVID pandemic. If you are interested in working on a Habitat home for a family such as the Johnson’s, please check out our Volunteer Page to learn about the opportunities that are currently available.

“I am building because it turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”
