Life altering: Chance for home turns Oubre’s fortunes

Published 12:00 am Sunday, April 7, 2013

Sulphur resident Kathy Oubre was recently chosen to be the homeowner of a house that Habitat for Humanity Calcasieu Area is building on Laurel St. in Westlake. She puts in her ‘sweat equity’ not only at the home but also at Habitat’s ReStore in Lake Charles. At ReStore, people can purchase home items, including furnishings and building materials among other items, donated to Habitat. The money goes toward Habitat’s building program. Oubre is pictured ringing up customers at ReStore on Saturday morning. – Credit: Marilyn Monroe/SDN
