The 2013 House for Hope is underway.
This marks the 5th year for the House for Hope home giveaway. It's a community service project of KSLA News 12, Community Renewal International and the Homebuilders Association of Northwest Louisiana.
This year the house will be located in Island Park subdivision off of Clyde Fant Parkway in Shreveport. the home features 3 bed rooms and 2 ½ baths with upscale appliances and finishes.
Of course, the reason we are giving the house away is to raise money for a new Friendship House in the Highland neighborhood of Shreveport.
The Friendship House is a haven for children and their families in low income, high crime neighborhoods.
I'm James Smith.
