LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A volunteer group is helping a Las Vegas woman get the home of her dreams.

Alethea Williams is known as the mother of the community, and volunteers came together on Sunday to 'beautify the block' that included painting and landscaping Williams' house.

"It's a blessing because I was trying to gather the money to get it done this year. So, it was a blessing for me. It came out of nowhere, I wasn't even expecting it. All I was trying to think about is how I was going to get the money to get it done," Williams said.

Sunday's project was funded through the housing assistance corporation and the nonprofit Chicanos Por la Causa.
