Desperate to flee a domestic situation, Tiffany Thompson and her two daughters relocated to Hope for Families. During that time, Tiffany leaned on her community greatly for support.
“I’m not ashamed or embarrassed to say I live in a shelter. It means I got out,” Tiffany said.
Tiffany works at the United Against Poverty Center as the Assistant Grocery Manager, where she enjoys mentoring and meeting shoppers in similar situations. Not only did she learn about Habitat through our active partnership with United Against Poverty, but Tiffany has also developed a familial bond with her colleagues.
“My dream is to move up the ladder at the UP Center. I want to help people who are just like me.”
One of Tiffany’s favorite parts of the home-buying process is the many foundations she is building. From security and stability for her daughters to relationships with fellow homebuyers, she is building more than a house with four walls.
“I’ve never realized the number of people I have in my corner, the number of people who want me to succeed. People care that I make it.”
Tiffany and her daughters are weeks away from closing on their dream home and finally achieving the stability and privacy they’ve longed for since entering the shelter.
Dinners in driveways will soon be a distant memory; conversations around the kitchen table are in their future, and the Thompsons can’t wait!
