Meet the Brackins Family!

The Brackins Family- Community Build, Fargo (2015)


Tenille is a hard working single mom with one daughter. She is excited to be a Habitat homeowner so that her daughter will be able to play outside in a yard and have a healthy home to live in. Tenille’s daughter has asthma and is extremely sensitive to cigarette smoke, molds and dust.  Having this home will be affordable for Tenille who works for Noridian, but it also means less doctor visits since the environment will be healthier. Tenille is another Habitat homeowner who is looking forward to the Partner Family Education classes because she wants to learn more about budgeting, home maintenance, yard care and energy conservation. Tenille has volunteered at build sites with Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity in the past and felt that it was rewarding to help families build their dream of home ownership. Tenille feels blessed that others are so willing to help her and her daughter.

Tenille and her daughter are the recipients of the Community Build Home in Fargo. Construction is in current progress and the Brackins Family are expected to move in this upcoming Fall.

The dream of safe and affordable homeownership wouldn't be possible for the Brackins Family without the help of the wonderful volunteers and community partners. Thanks to you, Tenille will have the peace of mind knowing her daughter has access to a brighter future.
