Pratt + HabiChatt: Women Build Team Kicks Off Fundraising

April 30, 2021

Pratt Home Builders is looking forward to partnering with HabiChatt again on Women Build. This year’s future homeowner is Tanieshia Looney. This is an event the ladies (and men) of Pratt Home Builders look forward to participating in every year. “We love having the opportunity to put in some good old fashioned elbow grease to help real people in our community. It’s one thing to donate to a cause, but another to really get on eye level with people and hear their stories and be part of them. That’s what is so special about our team. They are truly passionate about helping people right here at home,” said Brittany Shaw, Director of Digital Media.

The bio excerpt below is courtesy of Habitat for Humanity Chattanooga:

“Tanieshia Looney, mother of two and Chattanooga native, has consistently worked on making her dreams of becoming a homeowner a reality. Growing up in public housing, she had a happy childhood with her mom, dad, and brother. She was close with her family and played softball all through grade school and college. The one thing that was missing was a home that they could call their own. She was first introduced to Habitat through friends who had become homeowners themselves. After applying and ultimately dropping out of the program due to illness 13 years ago, Tanieshia is back and more determined than ever to step up to the plate of becoming a Habitat homeowner herself. Tanieshia was drawn to apply due to the partnership that Habitat provides. Instead of throwing her to the wolves of homeownership, she was happy to have Habitat walk the journey with her and become a shoulder to lean on. One of her favorite parts of being in the program is the ability to experience it with her children, Anthony and A’Nieshia. They have been given the opportunity to build their home as a family and create memories that will
last a lifetime. Tanieshia has learned many new valuable skills throughout the program, but the lessons on money management have meant the most to her. She has learned how to make smarter choices financially, so much that her mother continuously tells her how proud she is of the changes she has made. Tanieshia views her
mother as the strongest person she knows, she inspires her everyday to “finish everything that
she starts” which has given her the motivation to complete the program. When envisioning her new home, Tanieshia is looking forward to creating a peaceful environment with a stable foundation for her children. Being a mom
with a full time job, a baseball and basketball coach, and a successful hair business, things can occasionally get hectic. She strives to create a positive environment for her children to grow and thrive in.”

The Habitat for Humanity Women Build is about building housing by women for women. The program has been a success for over two decades. Each team is responsible for raising $2,500 toward the goal. The Pratt Home Builders team plans to host two fundraiser  nights. Please check @PrattLiving Facebook and Instagram for updates on the build and fundraisers.
