Home Dedicated, Built In 12 Days

A home is complete after just 12 days of building.

It was made possible by a couple hundred volunteers from 18 local businesses and a few professionals.

This afternoon, Habitat for Humanity dedicated the North Tyler home to Teresa Yarbrough and her two children. Teresa put in more than 350 hours of work into her own home and those of other Habitat homeowners.

"I know I'm loved," she said, teary eyed. "I know I'm loved. And I'm just truly blessed. I want to thank God. I want to thank God for the people that he sent out today. You know, impress this wonderful moment that we're having. I'm just amazed. I'm speechless."

Teresa also received a few important items to add to her home: a family Bible, a tool kit, a maintenance manual, and a flowering plant to add to her garden.
