Habitat for Humanity reaches milestone

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Iowa Heartland for Humanity reached a big milestone Friday afternoon. The organization celebrated its 100th family moving into a new home. A dedication marked the milestone as Laneiya Galloway and her two children officially received the key to their home on Woodmayr Drive in Waterloo. Galloway had to put in 300 hours of sweat equity

"It's a blessing. I just want a place to call my own. Instead of paying rent every month, I want to be able to pay the mortgage for something that's mine," said Galloway.

Iowa Heartland Habitat for Humanity is working with 16 other families right now on home ownership. It's 100th home will be dedicated later this year.
