CAIRO, GA (WALB) - Habitat for Humanity brings communities together to build homes for families. A family in Cairo is ready to move into a brand new home this week.
Habitat for Humanity workers and the community held a dedication service for the family Tuesday, officially handing over the keys to the new house.
The start of a new life was made official with the ribbon cutting. Samuel Edouard, his wife Tara, and their four kids have a place to call their own.
"Today has been so perfect. It's surreal. It really is," says Tara Delaine.
Community leaders, family, and friends came out to take part in the dedication of the new Habitat for Humanity House...ready to become a home to one special family.
"This family, about two years ago they were homeless. They decided to come back to Cairo and managed to get themselves back together," says Bob Anderson, President of Grady County Habitat for Humanity.
The family moved here from Orlando and have been living in government owned apartments. But not anymore.
"When somebody actually picked up the phone and called and said you've been approved that's when it really hit us OK we finally got our break," says Sam Edouard.
"It's undescribable. It feels so good to know that you can have a house that's yours and something for your kids to live on and remember you by," says Delaine.
"My kids...they are the future and if they don't have something to come to then they don't have something to lead to at all," says Edouard.
The familiy says they plan to move in by Friday. Feedback
