A Grand Forks family is receiving a brand new home thanks to the Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity. Andria Ruud and her three children have struggled to find a stable home since the unexpected death of her husband.

The Habitat for Humanity is a nationwide organization that builds homes for families in need. In order to qualify for one of these homes applicants must not qualify for a traditional mortgage. Ruud and her children moved into her mother's house after the death of her husband. After she was unable to find a place on her own she decided to apply at Habitat for Humanity and was surprised when she was approved. They laid the foundation for the home last fall but builders are hoping to finish the five bedroom home by April with the help of volunteer workers and donations.

Ruud: "When I moved back home I wanted to secure a nice stable house for my kids and I, after such tragedy of losing their dad and my husband."

Ruud's home is the first project Habitat for Humanity will be working on in 2013.
