ABOUT THE FAMILY

Both of the children are attending school. Lisvia is an athletics coach and also works part-time cleaning houses and selling school lunches. She also receives some support from the children’s father. Both of the children have some health issues, the care of which adds to Lisvia’s financial obligations. The family has title to a land lot, but they are currently living with Lisvia’s mother as they are without the means to build a home on their own. Lisvia works hard to provide for her children and tries to create a good life for them. A house of their own would give them independence and stability while providing a secure future for the children.
