Habitat Home is a “Dream Come True” for Brodhead Mother

By Helen Capellaro


Christina Tway and familyIn a few months, Christina “Chrissy” Tway and her six children will be moving from their small crowded apartment into a brand new five-bedroom home being built by the Green County Habitat for Humanity.

 
The Tway family met all the criteria for assistance from the local Habitat chapter which builds or refurbishes at least one home a year. Habitat for Humanity is internationally known for its mission to provide housing for deserving and somewhat needy families. In Christina Tway’s case, the fact that she has six lively children, holds down a full-time job and is also working towards a degree in nursing made the family stand out.
 
The soon-to-be Tway house is being built at the corner of Twelfth Street and Sixth Avenue in a quiet residential neighborhood in Brodhead.  So far, the Habitat volunteers have poured the basement and begun work on the frame and first floor. Construction Manager, Bill Balasia said it is hard to predict the finish date because the weather has not co-operated. High heat and heavy rains have interrupted the work but it should be finished in a couple of months. The home will be one story with a finished basement, modest, but much roomier than the three-bedroom apartment the Tways occupy right now.
 
Christina’s children are Cassidy, 14; Justice, 12; Bryce, 9. Abbigale, 4; and 16-month old twins Lilly and Logan.  The older three are good students, active in athletics and school activities. The younger are just active.
