She moved in Thursday and said she is happier than ever.
"I can go out in my porch and everyone is like, 'I love your house.' I say, 'Thank you,' they say, 'It's nice' and I say, 'It sure is,'" Mattie said.
Her stucco green home is one of eight homes the Seminole County chapter built last fiscal year.
They're on pace to nearly double that number this year. Fourteen new homes are going up between now and next June.
For the first time, the group is dedicating two homes, in a single day.
"I hardly get from room to room but I still love the house," Ms. Mattie said.
Families don't get the homes for free. Many have to carry a small mortgage. Thirty-six families are expected to move into new Habitat homes over the next
Officials for Habitat for Humanity of Seminole County said it has also seen a big increase in funding.
