Albany - - An Albany family fufilled their dream today - they're new homeowners. 

Habitat for Humanity held a dedication ceremony for Howard and Ma'kayla Wood. It's part of Habitat's "Building on the Dream" program in honor of Martin Luther King.

People in need of a home can apply for the program and receive home loans with no interest. The Woods are very excited.

"We got to choose the floor plan we wanted. Everything's wonderful. We got to choose the coloring and how we wanted it to look so it's a beautiful thing," says Howard Wood.

Friends and family gathered for the ceremony. Howard's wife Ma'kayla is preganant so having a new home they say is an extra gift for their family.

The Southwest Georgia Food Bank donated over $100.00 worth of food to the Woods.
