Mom and Daughter Surprised With Brand-New Furnished House After Being Homeless

They had resided in shelters for seven months before finding a stable home.

A Michigan mom and daughter received a heartwarming gift after enduring months of homelessness.

Ann Martin, 62, and her daughter Nina, 11, had been staying in shelters for seven months after Martin’s other daughter could no longer house them.

When the pair was finally able to secure a home in Detroit, they were in for a treat. 

Humble Designs, an organization that helps families who were once homeless furnish their homes, created a beautiful new place for them to live in.

In emotional video, obtained by Caters News Agency, taken of the big reveal of their newly furnished home, Martin and Nina both shed tears as they walked throughout the new house.

"We can not ever express how grateful we are, and how much this has changed everything for us,” Martin said. "Every day when Nina comes in after school, she goes right to her desk and does her homework because she loves being in her new room so much.”

Humble Designs furnishes the homes solely through donations.

“Newly furnished homes become the launching point for new careers, the catalyst for improved family dynamics, and the motivation to pay it forward,” Treger Strasberg of Humble Designs said.
