Two Families Move In To Habitat Homes

Two families achieve the American dream of owning their own home, thanks to Habitat For Humanity of Smith County.

A dedication ceremony was held today for the Solis home. Martin Solis worked in the U.S. while his family stayed in Mexico. The new home means he can finally live with his wife Maria and their three children Martin, Maria and Jazmin.

Down the street, LaToshia Eurine's house was dedicated as well. She's a single mother with two young boys. She says she's most excited because they will finally have their own yard.

"We have our own home. We're able to make new friends, new family. It's just a place we can call home. This is something we will own," says LaToshia.

"When we were in Mexico, we lived in Mexico. My father wasn't living here. He was away from us, and it was like, we need him," says Jazmin.

The dedications today mark the 66th and 67th Habitat Homes in Smith County. The homes were sponsored by Carrier Air Conditioning and the Tyler Area Builder's Association.
