Habitat for Humanity gives homes to new owners

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Not one, not two, but eight houses got new owners Thursday, and all on the same block.

Habitat for Humanity handed over eight new homes near I-10 and Craycroft to the owners.

The non-profit organization and other volunteers started working on the homes September 11.

"I've been waiting and anticipating this very moment and it's been such a blessing to us.  I'm so thankful for habitat and everyone that's given to them," said new home owner Kristen Gisselmann.

Habitat has another big housing project going on just blocks away in the same neighborhood.
