Family gets keys to their Habitat for Humanity home


LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – The lot isn’t landscaped yet, but inside the Bonds family is about to receive the keys to their new home.

“Welcome friends and family. Today is a very special day,” Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity Lansing, Vicki Hamilton-Allen said.

The day has finally come, after more than 400 volunteers helped build their home including a crew of women from 6News last May.

Tresa and Tyrone have 11-year-old quadruplets and a 10-year-old son who are more than eager to move in.

But before they can stay, their parents need the keys.

“I present this to you from Habitat for Humanity for all of your hard work and commitment, and this house is yours,” Hamilton-Allen.

Tresa Bonds still can’t believe it…

“How many people get to move into a brand new home?” Tresa Bonds said. “It doesn’t happen every day, so it’s still surreal”

Her husband Tyrone is just grateful for everyone who made it possible.

“They’re just volunteers, coming straight from the heart,” Tyrone Bonds said. “For that alone, I’m very thankful for that.”

While the family won’t move in until March, today their dream became reality.

“We’ve been tremendously blessed, today among all other days, but you know today it’s surreal,” Tresa Bonds said.
