Habitat for Humanity dedicates home to Sioux City family of six
SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - A Siouxland family has a new place to call home, after spending over a year building up sweat equity.
The Ramirez family had their Habitat for Humanity home dedication Sunday in Sioux City's Riverside neighborhood.
The family members said they were very excited to have a home where all four kids can have their own space to spread out, instead of sharing one room and one bathroom.
"Everybody wants their own space, and they're growing so fast, and eventually they start to need more privacy and things," Teresa Estrada, Habitat for Humanity participant said.
Officials with Habitat for Humanity said the that the home dedications are always special, and they love the opportunity to celebrate with a family who's worked so hard for the home they deserve.
"I'm very excited today, because this is an opportunity for us to obviously share the story of Habitat, of what we do, but also to bring this family into a home that is adequate for them. And that's our mission, is to make sure that each person has adequate shelter," Katie Roberts, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity said.
Roberts says they'll sign the official closing papers sometime this week.
