3 homes built in Beauregard for residents impacted by March 3rd tornadoes
BEAUREGARD, AL (WTVM) - Organizations are coming together to help rebuild the Beauregard comunity after tornadoes ripped through the area on March 3.
“As we began to rebuild these homes, these families will now began to rebuild their lives,”said Kim Roberts, executive director of the Fuller Center.
Three homes in one week were built in Beauregard for families who lost everything in the storm.
Cornerstone, The Fuller Center for Housing, and MEND are three non-profit organizations that made this possible.
“I’m very thankful, very, very thankful," said Napoleon Darby, house recipient. "Words can’t express how thankful I am. I started out with an apartment and now a house.”
Two homes were built on Lee Road 36 and another on Lee Road 166.
There were dedication ceremonies at each home for the new homeowners where they were handed a set of keys.
“This here is the kids’ bathroom, and this here is one of the kid’s rooms,”said a homeowner.
These families were thrilled to have an up-close and personal tour of their homes.
Some organizations are coming together as far as making sure one of the homes is fully furnished and making sure this family has food on their table.
The High Socks for Hope organization plus Alabama Crimson Tide head coach, Nick Saban and his wife, came together and fully furnished this home.
Others helped stock up food. It was truly an over whelming joyful day.
“I’d like to thank everyone out there that lended a hand,” said one homeowner.
“Nothing could do this but God,”said a homeowner.
These efforts are not over. They will be back in July to build two more homes and ten more homes in September.
