GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- Habitat for Humanity is halfway through its campaign to help 200 families on the West Side of Grand Rapids get new homes.
The organization launched its Building Blocks Campaign one year ago Thursday.
Since then, it has raised 90 percent of its $5 million goal to revitalize five West Side neighborhoods.
About half of the organization's planned projects are also underway or completed.
One house under renovations will go to a woman who has waited eight years for her own home.
"It's exciting, 'cause I can have something that is mine," Elvira Torres said. "I can start fixing up something that I can look forward to in the future."
