Labor of Love: The Latest Habitat Home Begins

A home of her own is all she wanted, and her dream is coming true.

Pamala Ford of Tyler is the latest recipient of a "Women Build" habitat home. Funding was donated by the Junior League of Tyler. Ford's new house will be constructed completely by women volunteers. The first lady of Texas, Anita Perry, even helped Pamala break ground on her home Thursday morning. Dozens of women are signing up to help. Construction begins this month and ends in December.

Pamala will share the home with her three kids. Alone, she put in 500 hours of sweat equity to earn her home.
