Perez Family Home Wallraising
February 16 @ February 16 - February 16 UTC+0
We are raising the walls of the Perez Family Home this Saturday!
For the past three-and-a-half years, Juan and Liliana Perez have lived in a two-bedroom, two-bathroom mobile home without central heating and cooling. In addition, their two children, Alexa (12) and Victor (10), have no outdoor play area. When friends told them about the Habitat program, they jumped at the chance to apply for a home.
Juan and Liliana qualified for Habitat’s homeownership program last year.
“We were very happy,” Liliana said. “After everyone left, we all cried. We couldn’t believe it.”
Of course, the most excited members of the family are the children.
“The kids are so happy,” Liliana said. “They keep talking about how they want to paint their rooms.”
As of January 2019, they have completed more than 300 hours, and they can’t wait to start the sweat equity hours needed on their own home!
Juan and Liliana are grateful to the Circle of Women members who are financially sponsoring their home and will volunteer their time to help them build their home. They are deeply moved by all those who give their time and resources to help strangers secure better places to live.
Join Juan and Liliana Perez and their home sponsors from the Circle of Women this Saturday for a short wall-raising ceremony before the volunteers get to work and see what B/CS Habitat is all about!
