BELLE GLADE — Immelda Alouption says she thanks God for not only allowing her family to become homeowners but also for providing the hands that built their Belle Glade home from the ground up. 

It has almost been one year since Alouption, 19, and her family received the keys to their new house. They are just one of the hundreds of families that Habitat for Humanity Palm Beach County has helped “achieve the dream of homeownership.” 

Within a year, 12 more families will achieve the same goal thanks to the nonprofit that builds homes for low-income families. 

“We are so grateful that the place that we have called home for many years — because my parents and my sisters have been in Belle Glade for decades — (is a place) where we are finally able to have a home,” Alouption said in her thank-you speech during her family’s house dedication in September.
