HOUSTON, Texas - Helping a Hero helped military veteran Jennifer Penn get a new home. The home is over 2,500 square feet and has a beautiful master suite for Penn but because of her severe injuries, she needs care, so the home comes with a mini-suite for her parents to serve as her care givers.

Penn says, "You guys are out here calling me a hero, but you guys are my heroes. It's wonderful, it's definitely wonderful. This is something that you see in the movies, I guess I feel like I'm a little like Cinderella. This was made by love, this was made by people who care, this was made by people who wanted to make me very happy and that's what they did."
