Trista Hopkins, a U.S. Army veteran in Dallas who was raising two daughters in a dilapidated home with holes in the roof and no running water, now has a renovated home with new furnishings — just in time for Thanksgiving.
Thanks to Rebuilding Together of Greater Dallas, Dwell With Dignity, and many volunteers — including R.O.T.C. students from the Cary Middle School where she works as a cafeteria server — the home that once was barely livable, is now a beautiful tribute to her service.
Trista’s aunt nominated her at Rebuilding Together, which handed over the keys to the remodeled home in a ceremony yesterday. She plans to marry her fiance at the home next week.
