Tanika has been living in public housing for 16 years and desires to have a home of her own. She stated that her current home does not provide enough space, there is mold growing in the upstairs bathroom, the ceiling in the dining room leaks and animals rummage through her trash. She also reports that there is a lot of “traffic” in her neighborhood. Tanika is an Environmental Services Worker at Carolinas Health Care System. Her daughter Shawniyah is 16. If she is identified as a future homeowner, she says that we can expect dedication from her.
