MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - A Moultrie woman has a home to call her own after a dedication from the Flint River Habitat for Humanity earlier this week.

Sahra Long and her family received their new home in the 900 block of 7th Street NW with delight.

Pictures from the event Thursday morning show family and friends had big smiles and clapped as Glen Ellis, the previous homeowner, handed over the keys.

The family completed 300 sweat equity hours helping the Flint River Habitat ReStore.

Long had purchased the home with a no-interest loan. And her monthly mortgage payments will help fuel more projects so other families can become homeowners as well.

Flint River Habitat for Humanity builds and repairs homes for affordable homes for those that qualify.
