Before partnering with Habitat for Humanity Metro Denver, in Colorado, Tanya couldn’t see foresee her daughters’ future. Now she can. She doesn’t know the details, but she does know this: “Their future is bright.”
The family’s present is brighter, too. “The girls are doing well in school,” Tanya says. “We sleep better at night. We laugh more. We play more.”
Living in a home safe enough for her children to play in the yard is something that Lanay and her family are still getting used to. It’s a good feeling.
“This is a new experience for all of us,” Lanay says. Her oldest daughter, Tomanique, 12, has been giving her new roller skates a test drive, and her brothers are learning to ride a bike and a scooter.
