Washington family becomes first-time homeowners
CONCORD — Leroy and Tameko Washington were newlyweds in 2010, and then they were homeless. Now, they are homeowners.
Through circumstances far from their control, they spent a significant part of their early years of marriage living out of their cars or in motels while Leroy struggled to work due to health complications from a stroke.
It was an incredibly difficult situation to overcome and one others might not have.
On Thursday, the Washingtons were presented keys to their first home.
