Roberto & Mireya have four children (Junuhel 19, Kairol 17, Arely 13, and Guadalupe 10). They lived with Mireya’s parents with too many people in one home. Junuhel & Kairol’s room was in an unsafe basement. The family had been living in a different house for the previous four years but they had to move out and now they weren’t certain what they were going to do but they knew that they couldn’t stay where they were for much longer. A family member had heard that their local Habitat was holding a workshop about applying to habitat. Roberto and Mireya both decided they would attend.
"We are grateful that there are people out there like Habitat that help those in need!"
Now they are excited to watch their new home being constructed in Sturgis. Mireya says “we are looking forward to finally owning a home of our own!” Mireya continues “We are very grateful that there are people out there like habitat that help those in need”.
