Meet Our KMOV Home 4 The Holidays Homeowner, Tanjinia

It’s that time of year again, folks! The holidays will be here before you know it. With that being said, Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis is preparing for another great Home 4 The Holidays Build in partnership with KMOV and 10 amazing community partners! This year, we will be building in Marine Villa with our homebuyer, Tanjinia.

Tanjinia is a mother of two, beautiful boys and works full time as a billing clerk. She also works part time doing home healthcare. In her free time, Tanjinia enjoys braiding hair, listening to music, and enjoys cooking and learning new recipes. She loves spending time with her family.

Becoming a mom as a teenage was definitely a challenge for Tanjinia, but she still managed to overcome and accomplish her goals. Her oldest son Khamari is 12-years-old and is very gifted in math and enjoys playing video games. Khamari was an only child for ten years until along came Tahj. Tahj is a year old, so full life and a blessing to Tanjinia’s family. As a family, the three enjoy going to the park, going out to dinner and going to the movies.

Tanjinia works so hard to provide for her children and is looking forward to the security and stability of homeownership in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis. She excited and grateful to be working with us to purchase a home she and her boys can call their own. As a child, she was accustomed to moving around a lot, forcing her to make new friends almost every year. She is looking forward to having a home for her boys to grow up in, and knows this partnership with Habitat Saint Louis is key to giving them a chance at stability. At the end of November, Tanjinia will receive the keys to the home she helped build and receive her 30-year affordable mortgage.

Be sure to tune in to KMOV starting on October 28th as we raise the first walls of Tanjinia’s new home and follow along with our progress. Congrats to Tanjinia and her boys on this new journey! We’re honored to have the opportunity to partner with her and make a difference in our community.
