Home construction hit a major milestone this month, as work officially began on "The Pope Francis House."
The Pope Francis House in the Asheville, N.C., area is the first Habitat for Humanity house in the country to honor the Pope.
Once completed later this year, this four-bedroom, two-bath dwelling will be the new home of LaShawn Meadows and her three children.
So how did a Habitat house get named after Pope Francis?
“That was the request of the anonymous donor,” Greta Bush of the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity explained to me. “It was their concept and idea, and they presented it to Habitat.”
The anonymous donor picked up the tab for a full house sponsorship — $55,000.
