Oakland families get homes for the holidays - SfGate.com

Oakland families get homes for the holidays: “Santa paid an early visit to East Oakland on Saturday, when nine low-income families received keys to homes they helped build themselves.

"I know I was somebody before, but now I've got a piece of the rock," said Lynette Knight, 58, a Wells Fargo manager who now owns a three-bedroom home on Edes Avenue. "I told the kids, 'We're going home. This is ours.' "

The homes are part of a 54-home Habitat for Humanity development on a former auto junkyard near the San Leandro border. So far, 26 homes in the development - the largest Habitat for Humanity project ever in the Bay Area - have been completed, and the rest are due to be finished next year.”
