The Taylor Home
Laquanda Taylor purchased her first home from Jericho Road in the summer of 2008, and since moving into her home has had a new addition: a baby daughter.
LaQuanda grew up in the St. Thomas neighborhood where her grandmother taught her the importance of education, homeownership and community involvement. After graduating from Warren Easton High School, LaQuanda attended Southern University in New Orleans and then went on to work at Boys Town of America. While attending a Boys Town event at the Sherriff’s office, LaQuanda heard about Jericho Road and saw the possibility of attaining her dream of homeownership.
“I have worked very hard to create a better life for myself, and the purchase of this home proves that I can achieve suc-cess in all areas of my life,” LaQuanda said. As she was ac-complishing the goal of purchasing a home, she also reached another goal: completing a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Southern University.
Even while balancing a job and a new baby, LaQuanda has found time to stay involved in her community, helping to plan the 2009 Great Pumpkin Parade in the neighborhood.
