Two more families now have new homes thanks to "Habitat for Humanity."

Saturday morning in Moline, keys were handed over for the 82nd and 83rd homes. It's the first time two homes have been dedicated at the same time.

The first house, going to a single mother and her two daughters.

There was a time when I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel," new homeowner Magen Mlekush said. "And now we're here and it doesn't even feel like it's real."

The second home was dedicated to six refugees from Burma.

"Habitat for Humanity's" goal is to eliminate poverty housing around the world and right here in the Quad-Cities.

"Habitat for Humanity Quad-Cities" is a non-profit that builds affordable housing for low-income and working families.
