Cynthia Collins, assistant affiliate supervisor with Habitat for Humanity, waits outside the "Texas Roadhouse" in Beaumont on Friday, July 7, 2006.
Alannah Lewis, 2, stays close to her mother NaTonya Moore as they get a Bible and the keys to their Habitat for Humanity home. Their home is the first completed in the Hurricane Rita Recovery program. The house was called the "Texas Roadhouse" during construction and was arranged, pre-framed and delivered by WGBA-TV of Green Bay, Wisc.
NaTonya Moore (left of center) and her daughters Hannah Lewis, 4, (left) and Alannah Lewis, 2, (right) get the keys to their Habitat for Humanity home. The family had previously lived in a rental property in Northeast Beaumont. After Hurricane Rita, the home had roof and structural damage as well as leaks and serious mold problems. The Habitat for Humanity family selection committee said it was one of the worst places they've ever seen.
