CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - A single mother of three is getting the home of her dreams thanks to Habitat for Humanity.
The non-profit organization has been building homes in the state for more than 20 years, and it's the first time they have come to Cabot in five years.
Crystal Meeks has three children, and has worked two jobs for as long as she can remember. "We're coming from a two bedroom apartment with the four of us, so this is pretty awesome," said Meeks.
She applied to Habitat for Humanity a couple of months ago. She said the group helped her establish a foundation for her children.
The non-profit raises funds to buy materials, and relies on volunteers to builds the homes.
Saturday, volunteers with the Army and the Air Force helped build her three bedroom, two bathroom home. Bill Plunkett is the executive director of the branch in Pulaski and Lonoke County.
