DETROIT (AP) - Six families are expected to move into newly built Habitat for Humanity homes on Detroit’s eastside.

Dedications of the 4-bedroom, ranch homes are scheduled Friday when the new owners will be given their keys.

Organizers say the “Home for Christmas” event symbolizes neighborhood revitalization in Detroit.

Moving trucks will bring each family’s belongings to their homes in the Morningside Commons neighborhood. Volunteers will help unload the trucks. The homes are on the same block.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers and the new homeowners began construction of the houses in August. The work is part of “Leaders to ReBuild Detroit” - a three-year, $25 million initiative to engage Detroit’s corporate leaders in revitalizing the city.
