ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Habitat for Humanity is working on building a home in Roseburg, but they're in need of some help to finish the project.

The home on West Broccoli Street is for Theresa Remiro, who initially applied for a Habitat for Humanity home to help support her son, who was unwell. Shortly after, he was diagnosed with leukemia and died last year.

"I want to see his greatest dream realized. I’m quite invested in this property and want to see it come to life," says Remiro.

While the project has been in the works for the past three years, construction has been slow due to struggles with finding funds to support the project.

Umpqua Valley Habitat for Humanity said they hope to get Remiro in her new home by the holidays. However, that’s only possibly if they reach their goal of $60,000 in the next three months.

They said they have had great support from the community, but it hasn’t been enough to fund the project. They said they have a GoFundMe set up and are still in search of a few more sponsors.
