CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

An Eastern Iowa family has a new home thanks to a non-profit organization and a group of volunteers.

Thursday morning Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity handed over the keys to the Weeks family of Cedar Rapids. The fully rehabilitated, flood-affected home on the northwest side was recently completed. The Weeks had dreamed of owning a home for the past 15 years.

"From a cramped apartment to a nice home.  Beautiful home.  Dream home," said Terry Weeks of Cedar Rapids.

Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity plans to serve 22 families in 2012 including several more projects in flood-affected neighborhoods.
