PERRY COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - After weeks of hard work and countless hours of labor from various organizations and volunteers in Perry County, one family was able to move into a new home.

Organizers with the Housing Development Alliance handed over keys to new homeowners as part of an affordable housing project.

Workers said seeing the community come together to pull this off. Shows how caring people in the area are.

“It's one thing for us to come in and help out with the financing, help them make it affordable, but it's another thing when 150-200 people in our community come out and say we want this to happen too,” said Timothy Baker, Director of Development and Communications at the Housing Development Alliance

Baker says 20 different local organizations helped with both construction and donating supplies.
