MIDLAND - A Midland non-profit gets a helping hand of $600,000.

With the extra cash, they're building four new apartments and will now be able to house 12 families.

Buckner Family Place provides low rent for single parent families while that parent works toward a College Degree.

The organization's President says it's mostly women coming out of an abuse situation and Buckner lets the whole family recover together.

17 families are currently on the waiting list right now, but because it's a two year program, the turnover is not high.
