Habitat for Humanity breaks ground in Waukesha

WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Habitat for Humanity broke ground in Waukesha Friday, Aug. 26. It's their largest construction project in that community. 

Habitat for Humanity Waukesha builds affordable homes for families, as well as providing assistance with housing repairs. 

The recently-purchased land near Carroll University will become 16 single family units in a new subdivision and two duplexes. 

Stephanie Morrison's family will be the first to move in. Morrison has been living with eight other people in her mother's house. 

"This is like the light, for me and my kids, and I'm super excited to be on this journey with the Habitat community," said Morrison. 

By 2033, Habitat for Humanity Waukesha wants to build 20 homes and do 30 repairs a year in three different communities.
