‘It just feels good’: Woman finds hope through housing nonprofit

CHARLOTTE — Tiara Johnson is the first resident in the Small Beginnings community in north Charlotte.

“When there is hope, there is blessing,” Johnson told Channel 9 after moving into the affordable home.

The housing nonprofit, Home Again Foundation, cut the ribbon Tuesday after Johnson moved in.

“It just feels good,” Johnson said. “I’m warm. I’m safe.”


She was living out of her car.

Vicki Craighead-Davis, with the Home Again Foundation, is helping Johnson with her new cottage and a future career and has already noticed a difference.

“She is happy,” Craighead-Davis said. “She has hope. She sees a future for her and her child.”
