A Fire Destroyed a Three Generation Home…They Need Our Help!
On March 28, 2021, a fire destroyed the home that Magda Estrada had lived in for over 4o years. With no means to replace her house, she instantly became homeless. While generous neighbors have opened their doors and given her, her son, and her grandson a place to stay, this is only temporary. One Small House wants to ensure they have a permanent home as soon as possible. Thanks to the amazing support during our build earlier this year, we already have $5,000 to put towards this project, and work has begun to clear the debris. But this isn’t enough to build them a home. We need your continued support. Please help and consider donating. As always, 100% of your donations go into building these homes.
Two More Successful Builds During COVID-19!
COVID-19 has impacted our lives in ways we never knew imaginable. And unsurprisingly, it has disproportionately affected those who have so little. One Small House, along with its hundreds of supporters immediately knew that safe housing was going to be even more important than ever, but we needed to find a way to safely continue our work. Through the leadership of our trusted foreman, Don Luis Lopez, and our local builders, we have been able to successfully and safely construct four homes during this pandemic. But none of this would have been possible if not for the hundreds of donors who once again recognized this need and provided financial support. Including one incredibly generous donor whose family paid for an entire home!
In February, we delivered the keys to two more families. Filberto Perez, his wife, Viridiana Madrid, and their four children Dana, Erick, Erika, and Christopher moved into a now sleep in a brand new, safe home. And Maria Jesus Cabrera, a single mother of four, is seen below receiving the keys to her new home from Don Luis. While many of our amazing donors will never meet these families, the impact that their support has on the lives of these strangers cannot be overstated. OSH, our friends in Mexico, and these families are forever grateful to all of you.
