Seven families move into homes built by Habitat for Humanity in the Tri-Cities

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Construction is complete for seven new homes in Kennewick.  Habitat for Humanity has been working on them for almost a year. 

Earlier today on 9th place there was a celebration of the homes being completed.  To get the homes eeven local people needed to invest 500 hours of their time and prove they are in need of financial help.

Jim Nozell and his four kids move into their new home in two weeks.   He said, "It's just one of the most awesome things that ever happened in my life. I'm on disability. I was in a plan crash."

Nozell was injured in a plane crash that forced him out of work.  He currently lives in a basement apartment but not for long.

He can not wait to provide his family with a new home.  Habitat for Humanity in the Tri-Cities has completed 35 homes and plans to build 12 more next year.
