Albany- Habitat for Humanity is usually known for building new homes, but some members say building relationships makes the organization even stronger.

Habitat members and Bell South workers from Atlanta returned to Albany today to lend another helping hand to a woman they first helped eleven years ago.

Along with local Habitat members, crews installed a new screen door and power washed the side of Annie Mae Rhodes McArthur Street home.

They say Rhodes has become like a grandmother to them and they enjoy helping her.

"We met her in 1994 right after the flood and we've come down here every year, two or three times a year and help her out, do some things around for her," Ruth Gillespie, Atlanta.

The group is trying to purchase a handicapped shower to instal in Annie Mae's home, but say funds are not available right now.

Former President Jimmy Carter helped with the construction of the home, because Rhodes worked for the Carter family for 22 years.
