It's a new home and a new start for two families in Pike County.
Habitat for Humanity volunteers are building two houses in one week in the latest blitz at Robinson Heights, and one of the homes will be built completely by women. With more than 150 volunteers, the Thomas family and the Adkins family will open the doors to their new homes on Saturday, September 20th.
"During the dedication we'll present a bible and give the family their keys and turn them over to their new home and their new life," says the director of Habitat for Humanity, Casey Horton.
"It's been a great experience so far. Just working with everybody and knowing what we're accomplishing," says soon to be homeowner Eric Adkins.
The Adkins' say this experience makes them want to be part of future Habitat builds. Organizers say volunteers are always welcome.
