A Lake County mom and her three children will finally have a home for the holidays.
- 3rd new home in Lake County built by Habitat for Humanity
- Home in Eustis went to mother of three
- Next home dedication will be in Lady Lake
Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter hosted a ceremony Thursday outside the Eustis home on South Center Street.
The 4 bedroom, 2 bath house was built for 35-year-old Mona Eisinger, who was living in one of the bedrooms of a friend's house with her kids.
"My 13-year-old and I, we share a bed and that's the bedroom part," Eisinger said. "And then my son and my youngest daughter who wasn't able to be here today, they share a bed."
"My son in particular, he said that it doesn't matter what your house looks like, it's the love inside," she said.
Eisinger worked for the house through Habitat's Home Ownership Program.
"Habitat officials say it took about 2,900 volunteer hours to build this house. They say the homeowner has to put in at least 200 hours before they can get the keys.
This is the third new home Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter built this year.
Earlier this year the organization announced it would no longer build new homes in Lake County because of high impact fees, but after a meeting, that's no longer the case.
The next home dedication is Tuesday in Lady Lake.
