Rosa's Home of Hope

Rosa and her family live in the ‘Felipe Angeles’ community of Juarez, Mexico. They lost their home due to a fire that destroyed four homes in their neighborhood. Rosa is a stay at home mother that looks after her family, she is widowed. Her oldest two sons, Isaias and Luis work to help provide for their family. Together, the family earns about $120 per week. In addition to her own children, Rosa cares for her grandson, Bernard.  They were devastated by the fire loss, but now they have a brand new home!  Thank you for giving so this need could be met immediately.  

Welcome Home Orantes Rivera Family!

The Orantes Rivera family lives in the ‘Felipe Angeles’ community of Juarez, Mexico. Jose and Perla recently lost their home when a neighborhood fire destroyed several homes in their community. But now, thanks to your generosity, they have a brand new home! Look at the smile on Jose's face, knowing that his family has a safe place to sleep at night.  He asked that we pass this message along to you: "Thank you for this blessing that you are giving to our family. May God bless you!"

Construction with Keven

 In June, we had a team traveling to Tijuana, Mexico to build two homes. It was an amazing weekend, and one of the highlights was spending time with the Damas Munguia family and their seven children.  Although our Spanish was very weak, communication began to grow, and we developed a special connection with their son Keven. Keven worked tirelessly alongside the construction crew to help build his family's home. He knew what this would mean to his family, and he couldn't wait for us to finish.  It was really humbling to watch this 10 year old hammer the nails that would hold his family's home together. Keven was so proud of his efforts, and you could see his confidence growing over the weekend. He helped make this dream come true, and his family has a safer, healthier place to call home.

A Father's Day to Remember

 I would love to tell you about Father's Day 2018 because it's a day I want to always remember. That weekend my family was a part of the Homes for Homes team traveling to Tijuana, Mexico to construct two homes. The first family receiving a home that weekend was the Valeria Rocha family. Jose Luis and Aide worked alongside the construction crew to help build their home, and they were full of personality.  Aide was a resourceful mom, and she even talked the workers into putting  all  the extra concrete on a wall behind her home so every bit of material was put to its best use!  It was great watching them work with each other and interact with us while their house was built.  And then, having the opportunity to give Jose Luis the keys to his family's home was just incredible to experience. Their joy and excitement couldn't be contained, and neither could mine.  What a gift!  Josh Terry, Board Member

Hope for the Santos Family

Santos Tzunún Sicay and her family live a small village in Guatemala.  Santos is a widowed mother of seven children, and her three youngest children still live at home with her.  This family is a group of survivors!  One of the daughters has graduated with a degree in accounting, and is the first in her family to advance to this level.  The Santos family has a lot of need, and the primary concern has been their living conditions because their home was falling apart. They also had all of their possessions stolen recently, but now they have a home that will provide safety and security.  Beds and a few basic needs were also given to the Santos family by the local church, and they are very grateful for all of this provision.  Thank you for giving the gift of hope to this dear family and supporting the mission of Homes for Homes!

Sarah Namugaya has a Home for her Grandchildren

Sarah lives in Nasuti, Uganda in her family's village.  She became a widow almost 14 years ago, and she raised four children.  Her son died several years ago, and Sarah is now the only caretaker for his six children.  These beautiful children have the privilege of attending school, but they were living in a home that was crumbling.  Now they have a three-room home with a solid concrete floor and a tin roof.  They are so thankful for this tremendous blessing!  This home will be a part of their family for generations to come.
