Christian nonprofit to reveal restored home

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A local organization is revealing a restored home to the public.

And that means a new family could be moving in - very soon.

Christian nonprofit Community One has been working on this nearly 100-year-old house on South Bedford for about a year.

It was in rough shape, until sponsors donated money and volunteers donated time to completely renovate the home.

Thursday, there's a ribbon cutting to show off the two-bedroom house.

But we got a sneak peek inside.

It's designed to be an affordable option for a low-income family.

"They're important to the neighborhood because they're a symbol of hope and just renewal of the neighborhood, and they're important to our city as well, so there's many ways that new housing really affects the lives of people all over the community," said Executive Director Eric Cummings.

The money they make from selling the house - they'll use to buy another house to restore.
