After four months and the efforts of 2,000 volunteers, two families take possession of their new homes in St. James Monday.

The first family to receive their keys were Todd and his daughters Chloe and Carmin.

The trio found out earlier this year that their home was to be the ‘Carter house’; that former US president Jimmy Carter and his wife would help with the build.

The two homes are the first of ten that are being constructed in the city.

The cost of building a Habitat is roughly $175,000, not including the cost of the land.
