The day Desinee Lawson and her two children, 9-year-old Elijah and 3-year-old Emoree, have longed for finally arrived last week. Lawson received the keys to her new home, built with the helpful hands of volunteers with the Magic City Chapter of the Alabama Power Service Organization (APSO).
“God is an on-time God, and He knew how badly I needed this home for me and my kids,” said Lawson, noting the lease on her apartment had ended only days earlier. “I thought, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do, but God, I’m going to trust you.’ When I got the news that my house would be built in two weeks, it was just perfect. I want to thank the Alabama Power Service Organization and Habitat for Humanity for making this possible. I’m excited to be able to afford this home.”
APSO volunteers gathered with the Lawson family in Pleasant Grove on Friday afternoon for the home’s dedication. It is the 25th Habitat for Humanity home built by the APSO Magic City Chapter.
