The Guzman Family
Margarita Guzman is a single mother of four boys: Jean Claude, 13, Marc Anthony, 10, Daniel Alexander, 7, and Axel Dwayne, 1. Her mother, Ma Reyes, also lives with them and helps to care for the boys while Margarita is working. They live in a very small two-bedroom house that has inadequate heating and a mold problem. Margarita has done her best to improve their living situation by putting insulation in the bedrooms and replacing the toilet herself. Margarita works full-time as a laundry aid at a nursing home but she doesn’t earn enough to be able to provide a better home for her family. She is very thankful to have found the Habitat program.
