Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland will hold a Home Dedication Ceremony on Tuesday in honor of new Habitat homeowner, Amanda Moore, and her children. Her home is the 142nd home built in Bradley County and is named the Women Build home. There will be a 6:30 p.m. ceremony at the Victory Cove Subdivision, 1237 Franitza Way SW in Cleveland.
With a limited attendance, the ceremony will also be live on Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland’s Facebook page.
Officials said, "Born and raised in Cleveland, Amanda Moore is an outgoing and hard-working young lady. She is a single mother of her three beautiful children, Jakia, Johnathan and Amontay Walker.
"Amanda and her family have been renting a home with poor electrical wiring, soft floors that
her daughter has fallen through and a leaking roof. A tree in her backyard has been down for over a year and she can't mow around it. Their neighborhood feels unsafe, with police constantly patrolling the street and illegal activities taking place nearby. She believes her children deserve to grow up where they can go outside without being afraid."
"It's going to get better. I promise," she tells them.
As a single parent, Amanda has been determined to learn all she can in the Habitat program to
ensure a bright future for her children and herself. She said, "I want things to be better for my kids
and to show them that it's possible to do anything." She is very excited to soon have a home
of her own, where her family can flourish and excel.
