City Could Donate Two Lots of Land to Habitat for Humanity

WICHITA FALLS, TX - Lillie Reynolds helps out a woman who lives in a Habitat for Humanity home -- along Fort Worth Street in Wichita Falls.

And Reynolds has witnessed how the non-profit organization has impacted the woman's life.

"She's more positive and she takes care of her family. She was doing that before, but this is in a better condition. A different home," Reynolds said.

Recently, on both Fort Worth and Dallas Streets, the local Habitat for Humanity chapter has built several homes.

"It's a great opportunity for us to go in and kind of revitalize the area with new homes and homeowners and new families and kind of bring life back to that area," Habitat for Humanity Executive Director, Dan Gray, said.

In fact, throughout the years, the organization has built about 100 homes in the community -- including a subdivision of 37 homes -- with the majority of those on the east side of town.

And on Tuesday, the city council could decide to donate two more plots of land along Dallas Street to the organization.

Gray said the city has played a big role in their efforts.

"The city has been great to work with. They've helped us identify different areas in need of revitalization," Gray said.

"I like it. I think it gives growth to the community. It helps it look better. You don't have empty lots, so you have families that live and are enjoying their homes," Reynolds said.

As people take pride in their homes, Reynolds said she has seen for herself how the organization has changed the entire area -- and changed lives.

Gray said they have a few families already approved and in line for these potential new homes.
