Today, one Jackson County family got the Christmas gift of their dreams: their own home. The Dwyre family got the keys to their new four-bedroom home this morning. It was a home built by Habitat for Humanity. The organization partnered up with other companies in the area earlier this year to start giving more needy families the chance to own a home.
Scott Dwyre, the father of the family, says, "To have your own home, it's more than a home. It's giving us a brand new life. My kids can play in the streets like kids now, they can do things that kids do. It's a feeling I just can't explain. It's the American Dream. It's what everyone wants. You want to own your own house."
