Family of 6 Receives New Home

Volunteers and neighbors help the Diaz family raise a wall of their new Moorhead home.2 / 2

A Moorhead family of 6 is excited to have a new place to call home.

Neighbors and volunteers from the Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity are lending a hand to help build the Diaz family's new house.

An emotional wall raising ceremony celebrated the beginning of the build.

And the grateful family looks forward to starting a new life.

Sarah Diaz/ Receiving Home: there's nothing we can do to repay the people who have helped, the community that's come together for us and... it means everything to us.

Habitat for Humanity offers classes to teach new homeowners how to manage their finances.

And recipients are expected to volunteer on future builds.
