Family will soon have new home

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.—A single mother and her daughter will soon have a new home after years of apartment hopping.  ‘First Story', a non-profit agency working to give families affordable housing, is now building a home for the Hodges family.

The home will be on West 23rd Avenue in Kennewick.  The mother says she is very excited to finally have a permanent home for her daughter.

"Being able to have a foundation of a home base, a place she can grow up in and not have to worry about where we're going to live next and what school she might have to go to next year," says Jessica Hodges, receiving home.

‘First Story' helps families own a home through a zero down payment and zero interested 30-year home loan.  Hodges' home will have three bedrooms, two baths and a two-car garage.
