BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - A Boynton Beach family counted down the days until they would get to move into their new home on Sunday.
"And I walked in and I was like wow, this is nice, oh my God, I couldn't believe it," said Rhonda Jenkins.
Rhonda Jenkins was overwhelmed after getting her first look at her new home Sunday afternoon.
The one story home was built by Habitat for Humanity and funded by The Broken Sound Club.
The club heard Jenkins' story, watched her dedicate 500 hours of labor, and thought she was a well deserving recipient for the new house.
"It grounds everybody, it helps people realize that there are less fortunate people than ourselves out there and if we can help, by volunteering hours or raising dollars for the various things inside the home, its a wonderful thing," said John Crean of Broken Sound.
Jenkins says her family will move in next month and she plans to continue volunteering with habitat for humanity to help others in Palm Beach County.
