In a press conference in Gary today six Gary residents out of 25 applicants were chosen to receive a new home for just a dollar. Silvia and Milton Willis were one of the couples chosen. Silvia Willis, a life long Gary resident, says after living in an apartment in the Miller area, this would be their first home. Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson announced the results of the Dollar Home Drawing and says the dollar home recipients must live in their homes a minimum of five years.
