TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - What was once an empty lot in Tupelo is now a family's home.
The latest recipient of a home from Habitat for Humanity is Teresa Agnew. The home is located on Broadway Street.
Many of the people who worked on the house, as well as Agnew and her family, were at the dedication of the home Tuesday morning.
First Presbyterian Church aided with fund and provided volunteers for the build, which took a little longer than normal.
"It took us a while to complete," said Michelle Shepherd of Habitat for Humanity. "We faces some interesting challenges as always with the size of the lot, a new plan and a few things that popped up during building."
Agnew says she feels blessed.
"I'm happy for everything that has happened to me," she said. "It all happened because of God. Without him, it would not have been possible. I just thank God and give him all of the honor and glory."
Agnew picked out the colors and planted the flowers in the yard herself and is expecting to move in soon.
