EUGENE, Ore. — A hard working single mother and her son got the keys to their brand new home in Santa Clara Sunday afternoon in front of a large crowd of community members.
Autumn Wise and her son Dylan have been working with Habitat for Humanity for two years. Wise plugged in more than 500 sweat equity hours into her new home on Yogi Way–the first home she’s ever owned. Partners and volunteers say she was very physically involved. Many nails were hammered in by her own hands.
“You really become like a family out here, goofing off and teasing each other, and they really care about you more than just building a home. They care about the family, and me and my son,” said Wise.
This is one of five houses that will be built through Habitat on Yogi Way.
