JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)

River City Habitat for Humanity is hosting an open house for four new homes Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Those homes, built for victims of the devastating tornado that hit Jefferson City in 2019.

One home is located on Ashley Street, with the other three being built on Jackson Street.

Habitat for Humanity said they were focused on the Jackson Street area, because it was one of the hardest hit by the tornado.

The four homes took the group less than six months to complete and they will all be ready to be moved into by the end of the year.

Community members will be able to tour all four homes Saturday, something Habitat for Humanity said was important because the process was a community effort.

Representatives with Habitat for Humanity will also be available to answer any questions at the homes.

The group is requiring face masks and said they will limit the amount of people in a house at any given time.

Numerous businesses in Jefferson City have also donated gift cards to the open house event.

Habitat for Humanity plans on doing drawings all morning for those gift cards. If interested, one can either drop a business card in the jar or fill out a form at the front door of the house.

Businesses that donated to the event include Cajun Catfish, Carrie’s Hallmark, Coffee Zone, The Capital Mall, CORK and Dills with a Twist.
