Archdiocese of Miami, Habitat for Humanity build home for family

NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - One South Florida church built a home for a deserving family.

The Archdiocese of Miami and its volunteers from Habitat for Humanity built a new home for a family of six, just in time for the holidays. “It feels great to have a new house because usually we all struggle together because we are a family of 6,” said one of the family members, Erick Garcia. “We were all scrumbled up and now we have our own rooms. It’s different.”

The newly-finished home is located in Liberty City and is the second to be built and named after Pope Francis. “They are happy because they were living in very close quarters,” said Archbishop Thomas Wenski of the Archdiocese of Miami. “Now, they have a four-bedroom house and more privacy from the kids, especially as they get older.”

7News is a proud sponsor of Habitat for Humanity.
