The Lopez Family

Back to all Family Stories

Lazaro Rival Lopez and his wife, Maria, have two daughters living with them,  Eunice, 13, and Damaris, 4, and two sons Abrahem, 18, and Ismerei, 11. Lazaro is a parks maintenance service worker and Maria is a package handler. Their current living situation has peeling paint, inadequate heat, and unsafe electrical wiring, but it is all they can afford. The moldy carpeting has aggravated their son’s asthma. They are joyful for many reasons to be a part of Habitat’s program, but the most important reason is that it will be a much healthier living situation for their children, and it will be a stable, safe place for their children to grow.
