Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The local Habitat for Humanity is kicking off its 2012 build season in north Fargo. Several volunteers helped with the ceremonial raising of the wall this afternoon.

The Home Builders Association and the Home Builders Care Foundation are partnering with Lake Agassiz Habitat for the first time. The home is going to the Nelson family, who will receive an interest-free free mortgage on the home. The Nelsons say getting this home is like a miracle.

April Nelson - Receiving Home: "I never expected to get a house through habitat, and I don't know. It's a life changing experience I guess."

Since 1976 Habitat has served more than 500,000 families.
