Bryan family gets house thanks to Habitat for Humanity

BRYAN, TX - One Bryan family now has a new house thanks to Habitat for Humanity, Vista College, several sponsors and hundreds of volunteers. 

The house dedication took place Saturday and it included handing the keys to the family, a prayer and sharing gifts. 

Andy York, the executive director for Bryan/College Station Habitat for Humanity says these houses are not free. 

He says the family put in 600 hours of work in addition to hours worked by the volunteers. 

The family also took homeownership classes and helped building other people's homes. 

The house is funded from the family's mortgage payments for the next 30 years, interest free and sponsors. 

The mortgage payments received by Habitat then allow for building new houses. 

Vista College gave two scholarships to the family for their two daughters.
