Family hit in Moore tornado getting a home for Thanksgiving

MOORE, Okla. – A family affected by the May tornadoes received a new home Tuesday through Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity.

The Herreras worked with volunteers from Continental Resources to build to the home which started construction in late October.

Continental Resources also provided funding for the home.

Habitat for Humanity provides applications to determine eligibility for homes on their website or by calling (405) 232-4828.

The application process has been expedited for those affected by the tornadoes.

Families are only required to add 50 hours of their own “sweat equity” versus the 300 hours that is normally required.
