Milestone for Fresno's Habitat for Humanity
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Habitat for Humanity's Fresno County chapter will celebrate a major milestone this weekend.
The non-profit is set to hand over the keys to a Southeast Fresno home for a deserving family for the 100th time. Christina Ordonez is a single mother of three who worked hard on the home herself as well as helping to build neighboring homes.
"It was more the just seeing my kids' faces and how the reaction would be and how they are taking to the house," Ordonez said. "And they seem very excited."
Habitat for Humanity offers financial breaks for deserving families to own the American dream.
Each homeowner also puts in at least 500 hours of sweat equity into either their homes or their neighbors' homes.
