Rodriguez Family

Stories of Hope

Meet the Rodriguez family

In August, we dedicated the new home where Juan Carlos, Ma Luisa and their 3 children will build a new life together. Both parents have stable jobs but still could not afford to purchase a home without the help of Austin Habitat. Before buying their Habitat home, the family was sharing a one-bedroom apartment. "I'm so happy to have a permanent place, to stop renting, to have more space and a stable life," Juan Carlos says. For Ma Luisa, she's thrilled "to set an example for our kids to work hard."
