Wausau family opens their home to give back to the community

WAUSAU (WAOW) -

A Wausau family is opening their custom-built home for handicapped children to the community.

Chris and Annie Teeters held an open house to show off the home Thursday. The couple has two children who were born with a rare chromosome disorder, that left them severely disabled. So the Build from the Heart project built them a custom new home with a community room for other families who have children with disabilities. Annie teeters says she and her husband want to give back to the community.

"It will be basically for those families to have a place to go and have support groups and playgroups educational sessions training, it's really hard when you have a child needs and they don't always have a place to go and so this is going to be a place for those families and it'll be their community," said Annie Teeters.

The family will host a fall festival on October 27th from 10 a.m. to noon. It will take place at the Teeter's family home on 5120 Stettin Dr., in the community room. For more information on the event or the organization, call 715-432-4799.
