ReNewed – Tyesha Swift

Mar 16, 2017 | Blog

Dorchester Habitat for Humanity dedicated its first Recycled Habitat Home on Cutting the RibbonFriday, May 16th Tyesha Swift and her children moved from a run-down, unsafe, and crowded apartment into a beautiful Home. Tyesha’s children celebrated by running and playing in their big yard. This was a joy they could not experience in their apartment neighborhood. Tyesha and her family celebrated by singing and giving praise and feeding Tyesha’s new family – Dorchester Habitat for Humanity staff members, volunteers, and donors.

This home renovation was made possible by Thrivent Financial, who contributed $2,500 towards our costs and brought a team of volunteers to assist. Kellie Leigh-Collins was at the dedication representing Thrivent and gave the Cross signed by all the volunteers at the ceremony.

Tyesha worked diligently to earn her sweat-equity hours and improve her budgeting and financial skills. Tyesha will pay back to Dorchester Habitat for Humanity a mortgage over the next twenty-five years. Dorchester Habitat for Humanity is proud of Tyesha’s transformation and considers her to be a shining example of the Homeownership Program’s success. Recycling the Habitat Home was truly a transformative process – for a partner family and a Habitat Home. Thank you to Tyesha for fulfilling Dorchester Habitat for Humanity’s Mission of “Putting God’s Love Into Action By Bringing People Together Building Homes and Hope.”
