GUTHRIE, Oklahoma -- Virginia Bounds was supposed to move into her remodeled home in Guthrie by Thanksgiving, but money problems have forced a charitable organization to stop construction.

Homeland Helpers, a self-funded group, initially planned to just repair the plumbing in Bounds' house. When the organization realized the home had more problems, such as mold issues, it found itself trying to remodel the entire house.

The organization was about 80 percent finished with the work when it used up all its funds. Workers said although the work has temporarily stopped, they planned to find some way to finish the project.

Donate to Homeland Helpers

"There's a lot of people right here in Edmond and Guthrie who are living in way below poverty level conditions," said Dennis Brunner with Homeland Helpers. "They need help. Somebody has got to step up to the plate and help them."

The organization said without more donations, it cannot finish Bounds' home.
