MOORESVILLE – Our Towns Habitat for Humanity recently celebrated the key-giving ceremony of a new Habitat home in Mooresville for Tanya and her son, Jordan.

The pair spent 15 years living in subsidized housing where they had safety issues and delays in getting repairs addressed, according to a post from Habitat.

Tanya, a stylist, was able to get help from her son, who is working toward his associate’s degree at Central Piedmont Community College, in order to complete the 400 hours of sweat equity Habitat requires from house recipients.

Habitat works to help people obtain affordable housing while offering affordable mortgages with the requirement of income and residency requirements, homeowner and financial education classes and sweat equity.
