Upstate CEOs roll up sleeves to build home for family

GREENVILLE Co., S.C. (WSPA) -- Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County is holding a home-build and community dedication. 

It's the second CEO build of the year.

The Powers family, including single mom Betty and her son Quinn,  will receive the home.

Quinn, 24, was born with Cerebral Palsy and Hydrocephalus a condition caused by excess fluid on the brain.

The apartment where the family currently lives is crowded and Betty said leaks in the ceiling could make it unsafe. 

Habitat for Humanity is working with Patty to make sure she learns budgeting techniques and is able to afford future housing expenses.
