McNAIRY COUNTY, Tenn. -- Friday, the Fowler family got the keys to their new home after a year-long process from applying to receive it, working on it, and now being able to move in.

Robin Fowler and her two girls now have a place they can officially call home.

"It's an amazing journey. They say Jesus walks with you through life. This journey has not just been me. It's been all these people that have walked alongside of us," Fowler said.

Fowler and her daughters, along with volunteers in McNairy County's Habitat for Humanity, have put a lot of work toward this day.

Since the organization started in McNairy County, this is the 6th house that's been built and a family has moved into. They were recently recognized for their hard work at the state convention, and received the award for affiliate of the year.

JoRicka Moore is on the Habitat for Humanity Board, and says the volunteers are the reason they received the award.

"We're hoping to put one in every community in McNairy County that wants us to," Moore said.

They say they want to form more relationships and change more lives, like they have for the Fowlers.

"I'm now a homeowner...which is something I never thought was possible for us," Fowler said.

The McNairy County Habitat for Humanity organization says they're always taking applications for families, and needing volunteers to help.
