Habitat for Humanity helps veteran move into new home


s been a tough year for some veterans here in central Arkansas, and some groups are trying to help even if it is just one vet at a time.

Habitat for Humanity helped move John Kusternin into a newly built home Saturday. The Desert Storm Army vet had been displaced when the old home closed and had been living with his sister.

Habitat developer Steve Biernacki said this home is one of almost 20 opening in the area.

"In this case we can get families homes relatively quickly. Typically speaking, it takes about six months to get in the program, get the house built, and get a family moved in," he explained.

Habitat for Humanity's program arranges the loans, and in this case, gets volunteers to build the home.
