Habitat For Humanity brings mother of two home

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany mother of two now has a new home thanks to the Flint River Chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

Volunteers and organizers cut the ribbon on Laura Alexander's brand new home on Willow Oak Court Thursday.

Construction started last spring. Alexander says this is the perfect place to raise her two young, active boys.

"It's awesome. My boys love it, they have a yard to run around and play in, so they're happy, I'm happy," said Alexander.

"It's not just changing her life, it's changing the entire part of the community here, which is pretty amazing," said Jennifer Vanston with Habitat For Humanity.

College students from across the country were at today's event. They helped the Flint River chapter with this home and are helping build two more homes in the area.
