MEDFORD, Ore -- The Habitat for Humanity in the Rogue Valley is helping families in need.

Recently the The Holland Family and The Hinojosa Family were welcomed them into their home-ownership program.

According to Habitat's Programs and Operations director Brandon Thoms, the families were selected based on three criteria:
the need for housing, the ability to pay, and willingness to partner.

“Each family is required to work 500 hours of sweat equity throughout the build process," Thoms said. "They also help us with fundraiser, events, community outreach, etc.”

Habitat for Humanity is currently building homes in Medford and Rogue River.
