TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - In just a few weeks, the Garth family will move into their new home thanks to the Northeast Mississippi Habitat for Humanity.
Nicole Garth and her family are helping build their future home. She said she was concerned about the safety of her and her children at their previous home, but now they can feel secure at this new location.
"As a mother, you want a location for your children where they can be safe and you can trust that they go outside and come back in okay and not have your house robbed and things like that."
The house will have 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The Habitat for Humanity supplies all the materials for the house. The Garth family will pay an affordable mortgage rate to the habitat when it is complete.
Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Mary Ann Plasencia said this is their second house for their build season and they always need volunteers to help, especially during the pandemic.
"The volunteers help us to get the houses built quicker and about 70 percent of each our homes is built by volunteers."
Garth said she is just thankful for the support of the habitat because, without them, it wouldn't be possible.
"I thank God for letting the habitat community use them to bless our family."
Organizers said the house should be done just in time for Thanksgiving.
The habitat builds on Saturdays and Sundays. For more information on volunteering, click here.
