Couple receives home from Habitat for Humanity

Posted: Updated:

WEST FRANKFORT -- It's more than just a house. It's a home and Helping Hands of Franklin County makes that a reality.

"To just see the joy that they have when they have a home of their own. They're not renting from anybody else," Kenneth Hearst said.

Hearst is the president of Helping Hands of Franklin County, a branch of Habitat for Humanity.

It was an opportunity that the Bejmovicz family never dreamed they would have.

"We got a call, just out of the blue, that they wanted to come meet with us. So that was almost 2 years ago in May," said Honey Bejmovicz.

Honey and her husband Brian are the new owners of the home in West Frankfort. 

They said it won't be a home just for them. After countless hours of help from volunteers they say it is their turn to give back and open their doors to give back to others in need.

"Allow this house and ourselves to be used by God to help. To help young people who don't have a mom or dad or have never been taught to be a young man or young lady with respect, honor, and courage," Brian Bejmovicz said.

They call the home a blessing and an opportunity for them to do greater things for the community.

"Without Habitat, I don't think we would be homeowners anytime soon," Honey said.
