Two families in Dutchess County will be new homeowners, thanks to the work of a local nonprofit.
Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County broke ground Monday morning on its 33rd home, this one located in Wappingers Falls.
The new, two-family modular house is going to people who have volunteered with the organization the last few years and have earned a place to call home through the nonprofit's Homeownership Program.
"It's given me a chance to give my girls a forever home and never have to worry about renting again. We will always have a safe, affordable, decent home and they'll be able to play outside with their friends," says Kimberlee Girolamo, of Wappingers Falls.
The home is expected to be finished by May of next year.
