We’ll also be building a home for the Ruiz Huerta family. Arturo Ruiz, his wife Lucina Huerta, their daughter Estelia and son Fernando, all lost their home to a fire. They’re currently living with extended family (10 people total) in a small, dilapidated, one room home. Help us get this family back into the home they once had, but even better!
The third build is repairing one of our prior projects. It experienced moderate damage when a neighboring unit caught fire (different from the fire mentioned above) and burnt down part of the exterior. As soon as we learned of this, we knew we’d need to fundraise a little more this December to keep Lupita and her kids safe and warm.
Below are photos of the damage to their respective homes.
And as funding allows, we’ll also be strengthening walls and putting on roofs for three more very needy families. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to keep yourself and your belongings safe and dry, so as this additional need has arisen, we are prepared to answer it.
Another Completed Build!
A HUGE thanks to all of the donors and volunteers who helped make this build possible. The Sanchez family now has a brand new, wheelchair accessible home! A special thanks to our team of builders, who turned those generous funds into the new house!
