A new program will soon put roofs over the heads of some of the 1,000 homeless people in Leon County.
Brand new affordable homes are also being built for veterans, single moms and the disabled.
Leaky roofs and lack of air conditioning will be a thing off the past for Marc Munday and his family. Munday says he's tried fixing his two bedroom trailer to make it livable, but it became too much of a costly project. That will soon change.
The couple will be moving just a few feet away into a brand new manufactured home.
The Munday's three bedroom home was made possible by the Good News Outreach Program, a non-profit organization.
Roman Catholic Bishop John Ricard blessed the homes with holy water and prayed the families would be protected from danger and harm.
The rent for these new trailers ranges from $125 to $300 a month depending on the family’s income.
