“My family and friends are everything— and I’m thankful God gave me this opportunity.” Terorah Davis can’t wait to move into her new Houston Habitat home in Harrel Park. What drives this proud single mom is her heartfelt wish to provide her daughter Londyn with a room of her own.
On Tuesday, October 11 at 10:30am, Terorah will be stepping into her new home for the first time and surprised with a “Big Reveal”—new furniture, a fully stocked kitchen and a down payment assistance of $5,000. This generous gift has all been made possible through a partnership with the Houston Habitat of Humanity and Warrick Dunn Charities (WDC). This is part of a greater initiative for WD Charities to impact lives in all the cities that serve as a home to an NFL team entitled “The NFL Expansion.”
Former NFL all-pro running back Warrick Dunn first launched a philanthropic community program called “Homes for the Holidays” in honor of his late mom. His mom was a Baton Rouge police officer who was killed while working an after-hours security shift to make ends meet. “I am happy to turn my tragedy into triumph for so many families,” said Dunn.
“Homes for Holidays” has served 149 single parents and over 400 dependents in 15 different markets across the country. This program is dedicated to assisting single parents in their mission to make homeownership possible. WD Charities is also collaborating with furniture retailer, Aaron’s Inc. in this initiative.
One of the first things Terorah wants to do is have a nice housewarming dinner for her family. “I’ll be able to have my own place, and my baby will be able to play outside!” Through shelter, we empower.
