Sirena Perry and her daughter ended 2022 on an exciting note when they cut the ribbon on their new home in Roanoke, which was built through Habitat for Humanity. The house was constructed with help from hundreds of Roanoke College students as part of the R-House build, which allows freshmen to help build a house during summer orientation. This marks the 17th R-House that has been constructed for families in the Roanoke Valley. Congratulations to the Perry family - and welcome home!
