Habitat for Humanity and Home Depot help veteran


OKLAHOMA CITY — Thursday, a team of 40 or so staffers from Home Depot teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to give a facelift to a home on N.W. 68th St.

It’s a house owned by National Guard veteran Derrick Issac and his wife.

They got help through Habitat for Humanity’s Veterans Critical Home Repair program.

“The House was just steadily deteriorating and we were just trying to figure out something that we could do,” Derrick said.

Derrick and his wife asked for help with their roof but qualified for much more than that.

“They are going to replace our carpet in the den, they are going to, we have four children and this is a two-bedroom house,” Derrick’s wife, Amanda, said. “We originally had a living room so they are going to turn the living room into a bedroom so we will have three bedrooms.”

Like all Habitat for Humanity projects, the Issac family must put in some of the work and pay back repairs over time.

Their home is scheduled to be competed on Veterans Day and will include a reveal party.
