Laurie Hanline’s wish is coming true.  Over a year ago, she applied for a new home with York Habitat For Humanity.  Right before her eyes, construction is underway, one hammer at a time.

Laurie says, “Seeing the walls go up, you can see where the windows will be, the doorways, it’s incredible because it comes together.”

Even more special, the home accommodates Laurie’s handicapped son, Allen.

Laurie says, “My son can’t use the equipment he as to be able to walk around.  He has Cerebral Palsy and he needs extra help to get up and walk and his legs, build those muscles up.”>>

York Habitat Associate Director, Miles Fishel, says, “To be off the ground and mobile, turning that first corner in his home, his walker and knowing we had a small hand in making that happen for the family.”

Fishel says this is the second handicapped accessible home the organization’s built in the area.

Laurie says, “Something I wouldn’t be able to do on my own for him and to see the people that care to come together for my family, to help me give him what he needs.”

In March, the home will be ready to move in.
