Saturday, July 1-, 2010, NOAHH dedicated the home at 4805 Flake in New Orleans East for Terry Patterson and her family. She comes from a large family—she is one of eight children—and she has a large extended family as well. She also has two daughters, Domique (age 15) and Destony (age 14).
She is a member of the Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church, whose pastor is Rev. Aldon Cotton, but she works at the St. Charles Ave. Presbyterian Church. Her hobbies include computers, television, and time with her family.
Her home was sponsored by NOAHH’s Fund for Humanity. The Fund for Humanity is the fund supported by the homeowners themselves—the money they use to buy their homes goes into this fund so that NOAHH can build more homes. None of the funds paid by homeowners ever goes to another part of the organization’s costs—no salaries are paid by this fund, only new homes.
