JOPLIN, MO-- The newest Habitat for Humanity home is handed over in time for Thanksgiving. Single mom Jenny Coleman is now the proud owner of a house near 24th and Kentucky. The build was a joint effort among Habitat for Humanity and both Joplin Rotary clubs. After living in temporary housing for more than a year, Coleman and her three children are excited to cook their first holiday meal in their own home.
Coleman said, "Just starting over someplace permanent and someplace ours is just fantastic. And I know a lot of people were affected by the tornado, and we're one of the lucky ones that we're actually going to have an improvement on our lives with the help of Habitat and the Rotary Clubs."
And the Colemans won't have to wait long to meet their neighbors. Another Habitat home will be dedicated next door on Wednesday.
