Albany - An Albany family will soon be in a new home thanks to Habitat for Humanity.

The home is the largest one built by the Flint River Habitat group. It has five bedrooms and two baths. Nine people will be living in the home.

Stacey Driggers is the executive director of Flint River Habitat. She says it's always exciting to help put someone in a new home. "We base what we do on the family's needs," says Stacey. "This is proof of it, handicap accessible, whatever. We build according to what they need."

Rosie is very excited about her new home. She says, "It feels wonderful, wonderful. To be able to have something of your own that you can say, it's yours."

Proctor and Gamble sponsored the Greene's new home. The family will move in this Thursday.
