Volunteers Team Up to Finish Habitat for Humanity Dream House

SACRAMENTO -- Several volunteers are helping a Sacramento single mother get her dream home.

Habitat for Humanity began building a home on the 2000 block of Fairfield Street for Rozonna Robinson this past spring.

She is a single mom who used to live in an over-crowded apartment in South Sacramento. When her young daughter witnessed a shooting in the neighborhood, she knew she had to leave.

But said she just couldn't afford to move.

When Robinson found out Habitat for Humanity would help build a home from the ground up, she was ecstatic.

"I'm the type of person who makes too much to get help from the government. But I don't make enough to make it," Robinson explained. "Every single mom's dream [is] to be a homeowner. [The] Reality [is] that dreams come true."

Today, volunteers from Safe Credit Union were on site as a part of the United Way One Week of Caring.

"It's really a collaborate effort to make something like this happen. So if we're all spreading the message out to the community that here's a way to come out and volunteer, more people are going to be out here to sign up to do that," United Way's Cole Forstedt said.

Robinson said she will be in her new home by the holidays.
