EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — Habitat for Humanity of Evansville celebrated the dedication of its 525th home on Tuesday with homeowners Angela M. and LaMarcus S.

“It’s a blessing knowing our hard work is paying off,” says Angela and LaMarcus. “We appreciate everything done for us, and we’re going to take care of our home because it’s such a big blessing to our family.”

“It’s been fun on the build site,” says Angela. “You get to meet new people, new friends.” 

“We’ve been a lot more excited and more determined to get where we need to be and focus on saving money,” LaMarcus says.
