PROVO, Utah (ABC 4 News) This summer a Utah family in need will get a brand new home built just for them.

It's all thanks to Habitat for Humanity along with some Utah women athletes who rolled up their sleeves for National Women Build week.

“It's giving back to the community, these are families in need of a home of a place that is safe,” said Noelle Pikus Pace, an Olympic skeleton champion.

Pikus Pace is just one of the female athletes helping to build the home. Members of the powderpuff flag football team Pink Crush along with the Happy Valley Derby Darlins are pitching in too.

“It's just great providing these families with somewhere to live and a way to be self-sufficient and really make a difference in the community,” said Danielle "Cookie" Mahoney, a member of the Happy Valley Derby Darlins.

The family they’re helping is from Provo and meets Habitat's criteria.

“It’s with a two-parent family with three children, they have a disabled son who's autistic,” Kena Mathews, Habitat for Humanity. “This family lives in a crowded situation in a two-story situation and because of some of their challenges two stories is a real challenge for them so we're doing a one floor home for them.”

The home is expected to be completed and keys handed over to the family in about a month.
