East Texas Family Gets New Home Thanks To Local Builder

An East Texas family gets the keys to a new home this morning, thanks to a local builder.   Conaway Homes donated its time and built this home for the Campbell Family in Tyler. It's part of the Habitat for Humanity program, which provides affordable homes for families. Tamika Campbell and her four children will be living in the home. Tamika says she's excited to finally say she's a homeowner.

"This means so much to my family," said Tamika Campbell. "To my mom for keeping my kids seven days a week because when I wasn't at work I was on site doing my sweat equity hours. It's finally here."   Tamika was required to invest 350 to 500 hours toward building the house along with Conaway Homes.
