ABOUT THE FAMILY
Julio Cesar has lived in Puerto Peñasco, MX all of his life. He finished up to the 9th grade in school, and has always worked in construction. Maria de los Angeles was born in Caborca but has lived in Peñasco for most of her life. Julio and Maria have been together for nine years and have two children, Julia and Maria, who are both attending elementary school. Maria also has two children from a previous relationship, and her son Antonio lives with them as well. He is currently in high school. Six year old Maria has had kidney disease since birth and requires regular nephrology and urology appointments in Hermosillo and Obregon. Her care puts an additional strain on the family’s already limited finances. Maria was working as a security guard at a local hospital, but is currently committed to her home and family. They bought a land lot a year ago and have been making regular payments, but are unable to afford to build a home on their own. They are currently living in an old travel trailer, which offers little security or protection from the elements. A house from 1MISSION would give this family a safe and healthy place to live while allowing them to focus their limited resources on their health needs, the children’s education and on building a secure future.
