Pastor Terry Swaw with Crab Orchard Church of God of Prophecy welcomes Tierra Parrent and her children to their new Habitat home.

Cumberland County Habitat for Humanity celebrated the blessing of their 67th home, signifying the “drying-in” of the home built in partnership with Tierra Parrent and Habitat volunteers. 

The house will become a home for Parrent and her children, 3-year-old Ella and 2-year-old Kasen. 

“I’m so thankful for the opportunity that has been given to me to provide a home for my kids,” Parrent said. “I also want to thank the all the volunteers willing to sacrifice their time and talent to help us build this brand-new beginning.

Pastor Terry Swaw of Crab Orchard Church of God of Prophecy performed the blessing, praying “Dear God, may this home be a place of grace, mercy, security, rest and, most of all, a place of love.” 

Cumberland County Habitat for Humanity is building three new homes in Cumberland County and needs volunteers to help on-site and in the ReStore. 

No experience is necessary to volunteer on the construction site.
