AMHERST (WGGB) — The completion of a big project in Amherst meant a dream come true for one local family.

“Everybody is amazing. I mean they take time, they take donations and everything, just to help somebody that really wants to make their dream come true of owning a home,” Pinero said. “And it wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for them.”

Pinero actually helped crews put her new home together.

The group celebrated the completion of their house on Sunday, welcoming family, friends, neighbors and volunteers to join them.

The Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity has helped more htan 30 eligible families find new homes.
