U.S. Air Force veteran Dina Kaswatuka realized her American Dream Monday when she received the keys to a new home in Arlington.

Dina moved from Africa to the United States in the 1990's as a teenager. Today, the single mother of one cares for her four teen siblings, all of whom were rescued from their African homeland in 2013.

To help Dina realize her dream, the Tarrant County Housing Partnership (TCHP) worked with the Citi Military Veterans Network, City of Arlington HOME funds, Home Depot, Keller Williams Realty and DSCI to acquire and rehabilitate a vacant and foreclosed house in a low-income target area in East Arlington.

Monday's event was one of two National Community Development Month events the City of Arlington plans to participate in.
