— Habitat for Humanity is on a mission to build 16 homes in the next seven days across the state.

Five homes are being constructed in Wake County.

Johnnie Mae White described her new home as a long awaited dream come true.

“I’m a single mom working two jobs, two teenage daughters. So it makes me feel excited. I just thank God for it,” White said Saturday.

Other homes will be built in Chatham, Orange, Durham and Pitt counties.
