Tia has been a YourPlace Housing tenant since mid 2022 and continues to enjoy her home as much as she did on the life-changing day when she and her son Azaiah moved in.
Tia moved from Brisbane to Adelaide when she was 14 years old and returned to live there in her 20’s with her son and partner.
Things changed, as they do in life, and Tia returned to Adelaide only to be faced with couch-surfing between friends’ houses, sometimes living in just one bedroom with little to none of their belongings with them.
Happily, this all came to an end when Tia was offered a home through YourPlace Housing, and it has been onwards and upwards since!
Tia and Azaiah love where they are living, and the location enables them to go on walks to the nearby park and playground so that Azaiah can burn off some of his 8-year-old energy!
When they aren’t at the park they enjoy playing video games with Call Of Duty (only age appropriate versions!), Fear, Far Cry and Bio Shock among Tia’s Favourites. Azaiah is currently in command of the Xbox, and Tia is waiting patiently until she can buy another one so they can both play their beloved video games!
Tia and Azaiah love animals and couldn’t bear to harm a living creature, not even a spider – they even have a huntsman in the house that they have named Jerry.
Listening to music and watching TV are high on Tia’s list of things that she loves. She particularly enjoys true crime documentaries and the show Criminal Minds, so much so that she is studying Criminology, Police in Courts and Corrections and Homicide. The interest in true crime is what drives Tia to reach her goal of one day being a Homicide Detective.
Family is Tia’s biggest passion and she is very much looking forward to making this house their long-term family home – that’s Tia, Azaiah and Jerry, of course!
