Homeowner Tashaundra Helps Children

Tashaundra and her son moved into their Habitat home this past June. A Broward County teacher, she also worked at the Boys and Girls Club to supplement her income and help local children. When COVID closed the club, she began tutoring and counseling. “My heart truly ached for my second-graders. Tutoring them individually gave me a new perspective on learning. I was able to see what my students have to overcome in their home environments. It made me even more thankful for the home I have today,” she said.” Tashaundra also began counseling children through crisis. “Kids need someone to talk to in this difficult time. We started with virtual sessions, then began counseling in small groups with safety precautions.” Tashaundra shares that her son had a hard time accepting the new “COVID world,” but says he is adjusting and understands that safety comes first. “As humans we cannot survive without touch. For now, God is making a way. I see his hand in my daily travels along this journey called life. I am blessed, and hope to be a blessing to others in this time of trial.”
