The Home for the Holidays blitz build is underway. With hammers and hard work, dozens of volunteers are helping to make one family's holiday dream come true.

This is the fourth year KVUE, State Farm and Habitat for Humanity teamed up to build a home for a special family.

The home will soon belong to Jennifer De La Garza and her three young children. The family has been waiting for two years. Since then, Jennifer has put in her share of sweat equity on other Habitat homes.

Habitat helps low-income families secure affordable loans so they can become homeowners. New homeowners pay for their houses and must put in 400 hours of sweat equity on other houses before they can buy a home of their own.

The home will be finished on Dec. 18.
