Bend Habitat for Humanity will begin work on their hundredth home in central Oregon this Friday.

However, one local family is moving into their new Habitat for Humanity home today.

Dorinda Vetterick and has been working for the past two years, volunteering for Habitat, and attending classes on home ownership and credit.

Robin Cooper, Community Outreach Manager for Bend Habitat for Humanity explains, "when a family enters our program they are required to attend home ownership and budgeting classes every single month, so our families are learning how to manage their money and what it means to be a home owner"

In addition to attending classes, habitat for humanity also finances the home at a zero percent interest rate and residents are expected to put in "sweat equity" by volunteering for habitat, building other people's houses, as well as their own.

Single parents families are required to put in 400 hours, and two parent families are expected to put in 600 as a down payment on the house.
