FRANKLIN COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — The season of giving is just getting started and gifts are the talk of the town, but one family is in for a special treat.

The Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County will be dedicating a newly built home to a local family on Dec. 10. The house will go to a single mom with four children.

“We’ve worked hard over the last several months to see this day come and we are thrilled that the dedication will take place just in time for our new homeowner to celebrate Christmas in her own house,” said Board President John Wilson.

Since 1994, Habitat for Humanity of Franklin County has built 22 homes. They say this is the first home they have completed since the pandemic. According to a press release, the nonprofit organization renovates homes to assist homeowner families through volunteers, money donations, and donated materials. The homes are then sold to families through affordable loans.

They say their vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

“I never let myself dream of owning a home. After all of these years, my dream is becoming a reality,” said mom and new homeowner.
