According to “Inside Edition,” the family was finally granted state housing but couldn’t afford to furnish the home. Daeyrs had been sleeping on only blankets until the family got the help they needed.

Nonprofit organization Humble Design stepped in to make the house a home for the family.

“When we visited them earlier this week they just had an air mattress on the ground and a few camp chairs,” the organization wrote on Facebook.

Video shared to the group’s Facebook page shows Daeyrs touring the house with his mom for the first time. When it came time to tour his room, the designers told Daeyrs to close his eyes.

When he opened them, he saw a completely furnished room, complete with "Star Wars" posters, a desk, and most importantly, his very own bed.
