Family Prepares To Move Into New Home

An Eastern Kentucky family will have a new home soon thanks to some good neighbors.

The Housing Development Alliance has helped more than 80 families become homeowners and repaired more than 150 homes. Alliance volunteers are building the home for a disabled father of two.

"We're taking part in a project that's going to provide safe, decent, affordable housing for a low income family," said Edward Gura.

More than 150 volunteers have been working on the project this week and one young woman was there because she knows what its like to need a home.

"We lived in a very small home and the community that I was in did the same thing for my family that they're doing right now," Nicole Mills said.

Governor Ernie Fletcher stopped by to assist in the project and he even helped put up some of the siding on the home.

"Its a great project, building homes, we coordinate to try to help folks own a home and get into a home," Governor Fletcher said.

The house is scheduled to be finished by Saturday and become a new home in the Browns Fork Area.
