Medford Family Gets New House

MEDFORD, Ore. – A single mother and her three children are thanking the community for helping them move into a new home.

The family was handed the keys to their new house in a ceremony from Habitat for Humanity last night. The new house was built on Rome Beauty Lane in south Medford. Habitat for Humanity says the house was a “Women Build” project, and call it the first house in the Rogue Valley to be funded and constructed mostly by women.

“That’s what we really want to do is to find someplace stable to put down roots and really enjoy our neighbors and everybody that we get to be around here in this community,” said mother Teah Laurine.

The family will have a 30-year, no interest loan to help pay for the cost to build the house.
