LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - U of L students raised $44,000 for the first student-funded Habitat house to be built in Louisville.

Volunteers from Humana put up the walls Thursday at the home on Alford Avenue in the Portland neighborhood.

By Saturday, the whole house will be framed and the roof will be added.

"I have two children, so I'm grateful I have the opportunity to give them that security and to have a home for them to be stable in a stable environment" said Theresa Frey, who will be a new homeowner.

The home is expected to be finished by the end of January.
