My name is Tyshica Warner and I have 5 wonderful kids — Tyrren, my only son, my 3 daughters, Tyrrianne, Tyrrinnic, and Diamond, and my beautiful granddaughter, Italy. My family and I have always lived in New Orleans, and we’ve always rented every house we’ve lived in. We always wanted to own a home. I always thought being a single parent would mean that I would not be able to afford to buy a home. One day I met a friend, and he told me to call New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity! I did it and I was accepted! I think that was the best news I ever gave my kids and the best phone call I ever made. Thank you New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity for helping my family!
