ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Flint River Habitat for Humanity gave the organization's first home to a Hispanic family. They cut the ribbon earning ownership of their first Albany home.
Imagine having to live in South Georgia without air conditioning or heat. For seven years The Dominguez family did not have air conditioning or heat in their old home, so they say their new Habitat home is a huge blessing.
Neivaly Dominguez said, "My Mom said that we are blessed." The Dominguez family cut the ribbon today, officially earning the key to their new home in East Albany.
Gerardo and Susana Dominguez and their four children moved to Albany seven years ago. They have lived in a mobile home with no air conditioning or heat, until they earned this new home through Habitat for Humanity, making their life much easier.
"Because we get to turn on the air whenever we feel like it. Over there we had to wait until it got cool," said Neivaly.
Flint River Habitat for Humanity officials describe the Dominguez as an ideal habitat family that will help the diversity of their organization's mission.
