ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Two Albany families are enjoying new homes tonight thanks to Habitat for Humanity.

The Flint River Chapter cut the ribbons on two homes on Rosebrier Avenue Wednesday.

Local volunteers and college students from around the country helped build the homes.

New homeowners must also put in five to ten thousand  hours of sweat equity to qualify for a Habitat home.

"Its phenomenal, it says so much, in terms of just people expressing love, the volunteers building the houses, but I think more than anything, it provides them with a sense of hope and opportunity to better themselves," says David Wilson, Director of Volunteer & Family Services.

Habitat plans to start building two more houses at the end of the month.
