Ortega family home dedication

Jan. 31, 2022—The Ortega family received the keys to their Habitat home on Monday! It was the first time we have done a virtual home dedication. Normally, we would host a big event and invite our volunteers, donors and sponsors to tour the home and congratulate our partner family. To keep everyone safe during the recent COVID-19 surge, we opted to livestream the event. If you weren't able to watch the event live, you can watch the recording (and see more photos) on our Facebook page.

"It's just amazing," Carlos Ortega said while holding his newborn daughter. "It's amazing that there are people out there who will help you achieve your dreams."

Thank you to everyone who participated in and/or supported this home build! It was a long journey, but we made it. We're so excited for the Ortega family and this next chapter in their lives.
