In honor of 30 years of bringing people together to build homes, community, and hope – we are asking our community to help build the next MacHabitat home for the Pacheco Family!
In the Pacheco’s apartment, the stove only has 2 working burners – and they turn on sporadically by themselves. The upstairs smoke alarms don’t work. The dishwasher and oven don’t work. There are gobs of caulking on the windows. A pipe burst in the downstairs closet, which left a hole in ceiling. The walls are moist, and the floors are soft. Parents Marco and Ma de Jesus sleep on air mattress in living rooms, while their newborn grandson already has allergies, which the doctor said may be due to excessive mold in the apartment. Marco and Ma de Jesus long for a better living environment for their grandson.
“We need a house because we need more rooms, and we cannot afford to pay more rent. The windows have little holes on the corners. Our walls have mold and we have notified the apartments, but they don’t do anything about it..”
Please help us provide and safe, decent, and affordable home for the Pacheco Family!
