Albany - - Two Albany families are now homeowners thanks to the help of a non-profit agency.

The Hayes family and the Lubrin family received the keys to their new homes Saturday. They are the latest recipients of the Flint River Habitat for Humanity's 'Building on the Dream homeowner's program.

The group helps qualified renters become homeowners by teaching them the basics of home ownership and giving them the opportunity to help build their home, along with volunteers.

"Best feeling in the world. You can't put it into words. You can't describe it," says recipient Ricardo Hayes.

"I feel great. I thank God for making this possible for us. Now we can help move forward with our lives," says recipient Dorthea Lubrin.

Lubrin's son says he wanted to help build his new home, but he couldn't because he's too young.

The families also received bibles from Habitat for Humanity. They expect to move into their new homes by next month.
