HOUSTON – KPRC 2 kicked off its 7th annual Habitat for Humanity build in early January.
It started with station staff up before sunrise, building the walls of the home that will be given to a family to fill with memories.
The families that are selected to receive Habitat homes put in a lot of work and meet strict requirements to be approved. Once they move in, they pay the mortgage.
KPRC 2 also sends a special thanks to our sponsor, UT Physicians, and our corporate partners: Veritex Community Bank, ABC Home & Commercial Services, Carpet Giant, Shipley Do-Nuts, Pappas Restaurants and Frontier Utilities.
You can meet this year’s family and see the home take shape with the videos below.
