Help Us Give the Sandoval-Hernandez and Bautista-Candelario Families the Homes They Desperately Need

This August, the One Small House team of volunteers will return to Tijuana, Mexico to build two homes for two incredibly needy families. The Sandoval-Hernadez family of seven, along with the Bautista-Candelario family of four, are hardworking, loving families that desperately need a safe, secure place to call home.

Marvin Sandoval Verdugo (36 years old, not pictured, as he was at work) and Sandra Luz Hernandez Jiminez (32 years old) have five children.   Marvin works in construction and Sandra is a full-time mother. They have always lived in the Tijuana area.  They have 5 children (L to R), Marleni (16 year-old), Mariana (14 year-old), Carlos (12 year-old), Marvin (9 year-old) & Mateo (4 year-old).  The children are lined up oldest to youngest in the family photo.   Marleni is in secondary school, the other children are 6th, 4th and 2nd grades respectively.

Below is a photo of their current home.

The second home is for Araceli Bautista Candelario, and her three children. Araceli is a single mother who works nights at a local pen factory (pictured below). Her three children are Manuel (15 years-old), Emilee (9 years-old) and Hanna (15 months old). This hardworking family has been able to procure a piece of land, but doesn’t have the means to also build a home. Our volunteers, coupled with your generosity will help solve this.
