Albemarle Program Gives Keene Woman Home Makeover

Posted: Updated:

An 82-year-old woman in Keene, Virginia now has a home that's actually inhabitable thanks to a group in Albemarle County.

The Albemarle Housing Improvement Program (AHIP) unveiled Helen Morris's new and improved home to her Thursday.

Before now, she had no water supply, no indoor plumbing, and a roof that was collapsing over her head.  Morris says she's excited to finally have a home she feels safe in.

"You'd be asleep and a storm would come up and I'd have to get up and get the buckets and things like that to catch the water that was coming in because the roof had gone bad and it was just unbelievable," Morris said.

The house is now equipped with a brand new roof, a full bathroom and a heating system. Morris says she can't wait to officially move into the home next week.
