Habitat for Humanity has sold two homes to be built by and for families in need in Huntington for the first time.

“We have built many homes in Lufkin and Diboll since the organization was founded in 1995,” executive director Susan Robertson said. “However, it is only fitting that we expand our operations to other areas within the county as we celebrate 25 years of service.”

Habitat GP Thank You
