Breaking Ground on New Habitat Home

habitat for humanityEUGENE, Ore. — A local family is getting a house for the first time with help from Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat for Humanity and local rotary clubs joined for a groundbreaking on Sunday afternoon.

Ursula Jimenez and her two children will live in the house once it’s built.  In the past she’s helped build multiple Habitat for Humanity homes and volunteers in the local Habitat for Humanity office.

Now, she’s excited to finally start building her own house.

“The Habitat program is awesome because you work and you work through it, helping, volunteering, and working hard to do your hours and get to the point we’re at today,” said Jimenez.

She says this is a dream come true.

Right now her family lives in a small apartment with a roommate. Once the house is done the kids will have their own rooms.
