ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Volunteers from Umpqua Valley Habitat for Humanity have made significant progress on a three bedroom home on West Broccoli Street.

The home is for Theresa Remiro, who initially applied for a Habitat for Humanity home to help support her son, who was unwell. Shortly after, he was diagnosed with leukemia and died last year.

As of now, they have finished the wood base for the interior and exterior walls of the house.

Volunteers said they got to this point in four days, and they plan to have the roof up in two weeks.

“I think what all of us are feeling is just this amazing visual of how fast it’s happening here," said Robin Hartmann from Umpqua Valley Habitat for Humanity. 

Officials from Habitat for Humanity said the goal was to reach $60,000 by November. In the last two months, they’ve raised more than $20,000. They said they are overwhelmed with the support they’ve received but still have a long way to go.

They said the ultimate goal was to get the homeowner in by Christmas time, but with fundraising still in process, they said it could be closer to next spring.
