Theodore and Airmeathea Lyons are the proud parents of three; Caleb – 9, Ethan – 7 and London – 1. Theo has worked as a plumber for the Broward County School Board for the last four years. With three young children, Airmeathea is focused on caring for her family and home. The lively family of five enjoy spending lots of time together playing sports, going to the movies or spending a relaxing day at the beach. As an active member of their church, Theo serves as the Youth Pastor for the Children and Fellowship Ministry at Christian Life Church.
“We moved to Florida from Chicago by faith, with no idea of where we’d stay,” says Theo. Currently, the family of five live in a crowded two-bedroom one-bath apartment. “Living in a small space with a big family like ours, is often a challenge, which is why we are so happy we found Habitat for Humanity,” Theo explains.
The determined couple has been actively working on their sweat equity hours, attending family workshops while Caleb and Ethan are active members of Habitat Broward’s Blueprints4Life Program.
“We want to show our children anything is possible, even in the bleakest of situations” says Airmeathea. With the money they will save from their zero percent interest mortgage, Theo will be able to focus on completing his Bachelors in Public Management at Florida Atlantic University, and Airmeathea can look forward to completing her Bachelors in Business Management.
