Tiesha Duncan is a single mother of two beautiful children – Jordan (11) and Jayda (7). She has worked as a medical assistant for Holy Cross Medical Group for the last ten years, assisting the OBGYN group with its patients. The close-knit family of three enjoy cozy movie nights on the couch while eating popcorn and are members of Calvary Chapel.
After being forced to move out by the father of her children, Tiesha had to move in with her mother. With the limited space, there is little to no privacy. Jordan sleeps in the guestroom on a day bed, while she and Jayda share a room.
“There is nothing like having a place to grow memories and to be in a stable environment,” says Tiesha about becoming a homeowner. Now Tiesha can finally have the opportunity to begin building a foundation for her and her children. “I’ve been attending the Homebuyer education classes and my kids enjoy the Blueprints for Life program,” says Tiesha about Habitat Broward’s homeownership process.
With the money she will save from her low cost, zero percent mortgage, Tiesha will be able to focus on resuming her attendance at Broward College, to complete her Bachelors of Nursing degree. With their new home, Jordan and Jayda can enjoy more privacy in their own rooms, and Tiesha can provide a stable environment for her kids to grow up in.
