The Project

This will be the third house built by the Seminole Ridge High School Construction Academy for Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County.  The program is now fine tuned to start a house in January and to ship it to the property in December of the same year.  The owner chosen by Habitat for this house is the Tirado family.

Carolyn Tirado is the single mother of two children, 9 year old Phillip and 13 year old Christopher. Carolyn works at the Treatment Center of the Palm Beaches as a Holistic Coordinator and is a full time student at Palm Beach State College. Carolyn’s future goals include finishing her associates degree and continuing on with her education to obtain a Master’s Degree in Social Work. Phillip and Christopher are excited to move into their new home where they will have their own bedrooms and a place to play their favorite sports of football and basketball.

From the future homeowner: “I would like to provide a stable place for my boys. A safe haven where they will know that no matter what happens, this is their home.”

The student-builders of the Construction Academy have put their heart, sole, and sweat into building this third home for a deserving family.
