A few years ago, Alvaro and Dulce Lopez realized that their living conditions were making their family sick. A serious mold issue, no A/C in the summer or heat and adequate insulation for the winter months was causing all sorts of health problems, not to mention a creating an all-around miserable living environment. Beyond this immediate need, for many years it was their dream to one day own a nice house where they could thrive and grow as a family.

But this all seemed so impossible! In Bryan/College Station it was difficult to find a better house for the same amount of monthly rent. At this point Alvaro and Dulce began to pray for a miracle, and they were eventually led to apply to our affiliate’s Habitat homeownership program. To their greatest joy, they were accepted as a Habitat Partner Family, and after months of hard work on their future home site and on others in the Angels Gate subdivision, the Lopez family purchased and then moved into their brand new Habitat home in April of 2015.
