Tyler Families Dream Home Comes True

For many familes in need, the dream of owning a home is just that, a dream. But thanks to Habitat For Humanity, another East Texas family will be moving into their dream home soon. The dedication ceremony was this afternoon, and after the dedication, Lora Wilson toured what will become her family's new home.

She was thrilled at her cooking space, since she cooks for two of her sons. "I've always had a small kitchen, I've always wanted a large kitchen with lots of cabinets, because I cook a lot and I have lots of dishes."

Habitat For Humanity has helped the Wilsons build a place finally big enough for their whole family. Their new bath-and-a-half means less waiting time. In their old rent house, Lora says "Everybody had a time span. If you're not out by then, you'd have to come back later. If i didn't, we would never get anywhere on time cause we were always late."

Central air and ceiling fans make the home a major upgrade in terms of comfort and safety. The old house was heated by space heaters, and Lora had to take them out because the rooms were to cramped to use them safely. The new house is more roomy.

For one family, congratulations were in order Sunday on opening the building they will make their new home.
