CALDWELL, Idaho — A Caldwell mom and her two daughters are one wall closer from realizing their dream of owning a new home, thanks to the efforts of those who are looking to fill a need for affordable housing in the Treasure Valley.

Hayden Homes and local nonprofit First Story are on a mission to provide affordable homes to those who are working hard every day to achieve their own dreams of being a homeowner. 

On Wednesday morning in Caldwell, the first wall for this affordable home was lifted. Those who are helping the cause wrote messages of hope and well-wishes for Marissa Wilson and her two daughters, who will live in this home where they can start their "first story."

"It's really exciting," Marissa said."It feels a little unbelievable for me that this is our home and that we are building it and that everyone that has helped make it possible is here with us."

Washington Trust Bank on Wednesday presented the nonprofit and the working family with a $25,000 check that will help with the construction costs of the home. 

There was no down payment, and a no-interest home loan was required for this house.
