Prayers were sent up Sunday afternoon for five new homes that were built and the families who will potentially be living in them.
"Five homes that are maybe about 1,500 square feet, three bedrooms and a spacious backyard," said Julius McAllister, senior minister at Bethel AME Church.
The Bethel AME Church owns the Bethel Community Development Corporation - it's main purpose is to build affordable homes for low income families.
The houses were funded by the City of Tallahassee and spearheaded by members of the Bethel CDC.
The five homes haven't been awarded yet. There's an application process for families interested. Those who get one will pay minimal rental and utility fees.
"It's going to be a difficult decision, but I know those persons who are going to be recipients of our good will, they will enjoy these homes," McAllister said.
Raisha Goodwin and her daughter are hoping to get one of the homes, they say it would be a dream come true.
"Being able to say that I have something that would personally belong to me that I can continue with my daughter, teaching her the ins and outs of actually having home ownership for yourself, would be greatly appreciative," Goodwin said.
The foundation has built 25 affordable homes for families in the last four years.
