Habitat for Humanity Dedicates 64th Home

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A Billings family received the keys to their new home Saturday thanks to the Mid-Yellowstone Habitat for Humanity.

Natasha Geiss and her children are the proud recipients of the local Habitat for Humanity's 64th home. It was built with volunteer labor and sponsored by the Saint Thomas the Apostle Parish. The Geiss family alone put in over 350 volunteer hours with Habitat for Humanity. Organizers said they will buy the home utilizing a 0% interest rate. Geiss said she is so grateful to finally have a home where her family will be safe.

"It feels really emotional, and I'm just, I'm so excited. I haven't finished packing at my other place, but I'm thinking me and the kids are just going stay the night over here and sleep on the floor because we're so excited," Geiss said.

Habitat for Humanity aims to break the cycle of poverty housing and create brighter futures for families. Habitat homes are built with volunteer support and donations from the community.
