A Tulsa mother is now sleeping in a new home, thanks to Habitat For Humanity.

The group gave Nakita the keys to the house in the Kendall Whittier neighborhood on Monday.  The mother of two worked alongside volunteers from ONEOK and One Gas to build the home.

Habitat's executive director tells News On 6 this home is a first for the program.

"This is the first time Tulsa Habitat has ever built a home with a garage and now our new homes also come standard with at least three bedrooms and two bathrooms, so we're trying to pick up our game and give our families something that will appreciate in value over time," said Cameron Walker, Habitat For Humanity.

Nakita has a zero-interest mortgage, part of which will help Habitat For Humanity build or renovate more homes in Tulsa.
