Waterloo Family Receives New Home

Posted: Updated:

A Waterloo family got to see their new home Tuesday afternoon

The refinished home was presented to the Lazum family. 

The home, which was built by volunteers as part of the Habitat for Humanity Project features five bedrooms and two bathrooms for the family of nine. Organizers say it is all part of their mission to have more affordable homes in waterloo.

"So we take vacant run-down homes and rehab them and rebuild them with volunteers and families."  said Linda Morgan the Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity.  "Or we tear down those houses and build new houses in their place so we are replacing substandard housing for new livable affordable housing."  

This is the 119th home completed for the Iowa Heartland Chapter, the Lazums plan to move into their new home Wednesday.
