Eight grateful families received keys to their new homes Saturday.
The seven new town homes and one refurbished single-family home were unveiled at a ribbon-cutting event that included a blessing of each home and tours of the homes.
Her voice breaking and eyes tearing, Marci Johnson, new owner of one of the townhomes, held her daughter Kailey's hand as she related how grateful for her new home she was, and the strong bonds she created with the other homeowners.
“So many people touched our lives and we heard that people drove hours and hours to volunteer for our site, and we are so touched, and so grateful,” Johnson said.
The homes were provided courtesy of the City of Burbank, the Burbank Redevelopment Agency, the Burbank Housing Corporation and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.
