Another Green Country family has a place to call home thanks to Habitat for Humanity. It was an emotional day for one family.

More than 200 employees volunteered for a five week project to make a family of seven's dream of owning a home come true.

Habitat for Humanity handed over the keys at the dedication ceremony on Sunday afternoon.

"It was kinda cool when we laid the house out that the boys were walking around the home trying to figure out which room would be theirs. That's the fun of this experience to work with habitat and to eliminate substandard housing in Tulsa," said Hilti President Cary Evert.

This is the fourth home Hilti and Habitat completed together in just two years. The two organizations hope to build a fifth home later this year.
